From the Chief’s desk:

Citizens Police Academy


Citizens Police Academies have become a nationally proven method of developing an environment where the public can learn more about their local police department in an interesting and unique way.  Since the instructors are the officers, the participants are afforded with the opportunity to get to know those officers, thereby fostering a healthy dialogue between the community and the police department.


The Lakeside Park – Crestview Hills Police Department has held three Citizens Police Academies.  The first one was in 2014, the second in 2016 and our third was in 2018.  We are planning on offering this academy again in 2020.  As with our first three academies, participants will be afforded a distinctive opportunity to gain insight into the many different aspects of law enforcement.  Our Citizens Police Academy is a five week program, consisting of meetings one night a week.  Participants will be provided with the ability to gain first-hand knowledge of a variety of topics that encompass modern day policing.  This is an excellent opportunity to learn about your local law enforcement.

Some of the topics include: 

 Introduction to Policing

Patrol Operations

Legal Procedure


Crime Scene Processing

DUI & Drugs

Special Operations

Emergency Vehicle Operations


Community Policing

Crimes against people

Our Citizens Police Academy will be held at the Lakeside Park – Crestview Hills Police Department on Wednesday evenings from 6:30 pm to 9:00 pm beginning on March 4th 2020 and concluding on April 1st 2020.  Residents must be at least 18 years old to apply.  Those interested should contact the LPCH Police Department at 331-5368 or info@Lpchpd.com for more information or to obtain an application.  The class size is limited to 20 students and there is no fee to participate.
