The Riverside Police Department is now accepting applications for the next session of our Citizen’s Academy, which begins February 13, 2020, and continues through April 16, 2020. Recruitment will remain open until the class is full.

This course is designed to give our community members an overview of the department’s operational methods, and will provide insight as to how police personnel perform their duties. Most sessions will be held in the Riverside Police Department’s Community Room, located at 10540 Magnolia Avenue, Suite B, on Thursday evenings from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Class size is limited and applications will only be accepted through the RPD website at https://riversideca.gov/rpd/community-services-bureau/citizenteen-academy. Applicants must be 18 years or older, and live or attend school in the city of Riverside. Those applying must also pass an informal background check. All sessions are in a classroom setting and may require someone to be able to lift up to 15 pounds and stand for up to three hours.
