    The  Citizen's Police Academy program is designed to give the public a working knowledge of the Odessa Police Department. Each class meets on a weekly basis at the Odessa Police Department. The instruction is comprehensive and covers different divisions each week.

    The goal is to educate the public about the Odessa Police Department and to increase the rapport between citizens and police officers. Our hope is that graduates from the Citizen’s Police Academy become more aware and better informed of how the Odessa Police Department operates and that they will encourage other citizens to join.

    The next Citizen's Police Academy has been post-poned until further notice due to COVID-19.  Please fill out the application and waiver here if you are interested and e-mail it to Ms. Lydia Elguezabal at
