Ocean City’s Citizens Police Academy is Now Accepting Applications

From the Ocean City Police Department

The Ocean City Police Department is accepting applications for the 2024 Citizens’ Police Academy.

The Ocean City Citizens’ Police Academy was organized in 2022 and offers citizens the opportunity to learn about the internal operations of the Ocean City Police Department. The overall objective of the Academy is to provide citizens with sound and accurate information about the Ocean City Police Department and the criminal justice process, so citizens can make informed decisions regarding matters involving the police department and/or police activity.

Participants will be able to share their experiences with family, friends, co-workers, and their community to further improve and strengthen community-police relations.

The course will cover different topics each week, including:

- Patrol Operations
- Community Policing Unit
- Traffic Safety Unit
- K9 Unit
- Police Dispatch
- Marine Unit
- Training Unit
- Detectives
- Administration
- Cape May County Police Academy

The Academy is free and open to all Ocean City residents and business owners age 18 or older. Classes will be held every Thursday from Feb. 29 through May 2 at the Ocean City Free Public Library (some sessions may be held at other locations such as the Ocean City Police Department or Cape May County Police Academy).

Applications can be picked up in person at the Ocean City Police Department or downloaded online. Citizens’ Police Academy class size is limited.

For more information, please email or call (609) 525-4252. (This is not an application to become a police officer.)
