Citizen's Police Academy
The Stony Brook University Citizen's Police Academy is designed for members of the
campus community to gain insight into the daily functions and responsibilities of
our law enforcement personnel. Eligible candidates will be introduced to basic law
enforcement concepts such as, police ethics, community policing, emergency management
operations, and investigations. Candidates will also participate in interactive scenarios
involving defensive tactics, vehicle and traffic stops, deadly physical force, FATS
(Firearms Training Simulator), and active shooter incidents. The goal of the Citizens
Police Academy is to give candidates a broad overview of law enforcement and to strengthen
the bond between the police department and the community. Eligible students can be
enrolled into a 1 credit class that satisfies the EXP+ graduation requirement.
The Citizen's Police Academy is a 12 week course that takes place on Tuesday evenings from 6pm to 9pm.
