Benefits for Graduates of CPA

  • CPA enhances the operational efficiency of the Cibolo Police Department through support of programs that contribute to the safety of citizens.
  • CPD is able to remove officers from administrative and clerical assignments and focus on officer-specific tasks. This directly impacts the delivery of services to citizens.

Improvement to Quality of Life

Public safety is consistently ranked as one of a community’s top priorities. This program enhances public safety services while indoctrinating the citizens into the operation of the department. These citizens often become community advocates for the department, providing factual information to the community and helping others understand how to access services.

Citizens Police Academy Alumni Association

Graduates of the CPA desire to provide ongoing physical, material, and financial assistance to the community programs of the Cibolo Police Department. The Alumni Association of the Cibolo Citizens Police Academy (AACCPA) is a 501(c)3 stand alone non-profit organization.
