Citizens Police Academy
The Doral Citizens Police Academy (DCPA) is a program designed to acquaint individuals who are not sworn police officers with the activities of our police department. The DCPA provides an opportunity for citizens to receive eight (8) weeks of both classroom and field training regarding the various responsibilities facing our officers. In these eight weeks, attendees are given a tour of the police station; participate in traffic enforcement, criminal investigations, crime scene processing and evidence gathering presentations; witness up-close demonstrations by the K-9 and Motor Unit; spend a day with our highly trained Defensive Driving and Firearms Instructors; experience first-hand how to conduct traffic stops and much more. After graduating from the DCPA, attendees are given the opportunity to enhance their law enforcement experience by engaging in a ride along with one of our own City of Doral Police Officers.
