Police Citizens Academy

The West Richland Police Department is committed to providing high quality service to the community. One service we provide is a citizens academy, which is a program designed to provide participants a working knowledge of the West Richland Police Department. The academy provides first-hand knowledge and front line experiences. The 2018 Citizens Academy will provide professional instruction in multiple disciplines. Graduates of the Citizens Academy may be trained to assist the Police Department with incidents, including but not limited to, parades, traffic control, and community events.
