The 2023 academy will be in-person at the police station located at 8701 160th Ave. NE in Redmond. The Community Police Academy is an interactive 8-week program designed to give members a behind-the-scenes look at our department and demonstrate how your PD works every day to serve you. 

Classes are held every Thursday from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. January 19th through March 16th. The Community Police Academy will break on Thursday, February 16th, 2023.

Applications accepted through 01/06/2023.

Class topics include:

Participant Requirements:

This year's class is limited to 25 participants to allow for social distancing in our classroom.  

We welcome those 18 years and older. Attendees need not be Redmond residents, but priority will be given to those who live, work, or have a connection to our city. Applicants' criminal history will be screened for admission into the secured portions of the public safety building.

*The Redmond Police Department will use this information to check for outstanding legal issues with our department. The findings of any such search will be reviewed by supervisors within the organization and a conversation would take place regarding the suitability of the participant’s involvement with the 2023 Community Police Academy.
