Citizen's Police Academy

The Torrington Police Department periodically hosts a Citizen’s Police Academy.  When the class is held, Chief William Baldwin Jr. invites Torrington residents and business owners, who are twenty-one (21) years of age or older, to apply. The class size is restricted to twenty (20) individuals.

The Citizen’s Police Academy is designed to enhance awareness and allow citizens to participate with their police officers. The Department will obtain feedback and use the ideas gathered during these sessions to make the department more responsive to the community’s needs.

This is your opportunity to interact with your department and share ideas with the officers who serve your community.

Some of the subjects that will be discussed during the ten (10) week Academy are: Arrest Procedures, Accident Investigations, Use of Force, Firearms, Emergency Services Teams, Drug Enforcement Investigations, Crime Scene Investigations and Motor Vehicle Laws.

When the Torrington Police Citizen’s Academy is held (announcements for upcoming academies will be posted via social media, so follow us), those interested may obtain applications from the Torrington Police Department, 576 Main Street, Torrington, CT. or you may download the application packet from the link below:
