Citizen Police Academy


The Voorhees Police Department will be hosting its fourth Citizen Police Academy for Voorhees residents ages 18 and over beginning in 2019.  The course will be held once a week for approximately ten sessions.  Included in the itinerary are blocks of instruction on use of force (both classroom and a firearms training simulator), internal affairs, traffic safety, tactical team familiarization, K-9 Unit demonstrations,  Communications Center tour, and crime scene investigations to name a few.

Applicants agree to a background investigation to participate in the selection process.  The class size is limited.

This course will offer our residents an inside exclusive look at the training and behind-the-scenes activities that make the Voorhees Police Department function in a professional, effective, and efficient manner on a daily basis.

Applications may be submitted via the electronic form below, once the application process is open.
