Citizens Police Academy

Yarmouth Police Department Citizens Police Academy

Ofc. Pasquarosa runs the range during the field day exercises

The Citizen Police Academy is a 36-hour course designed to provide you, the citizen, with a working knowledge of the Yarmouth Police Department.  Our instructors, all Yarmouth Police Officers, will be presenting a wide range of topics during the course. Where possible, hands-on techniques are used to maximize the experience.

This Citizen Police Academy is not meant to be a spectator sport.  We expect students to participate so that we may learn as much from you as we hope you will learn from us. The Citizen Police Academy meets one evening a week for twelve weeks at the Yarmouth Police Headquarters. Classes run from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.

There is also one Saturday session and, after the third class, an opportunity to take a three hour ride along with a patrol officer on patrol.

We require a commitment from all of our students. Students are only allowed to miss a maximum of three classes and still graduate.   If you have any questions or are interested in joining an upcoming Citizen Police Academy class, please contact us at (508) 775-0445 or email Officer Nicholas Pasquarosa at
