Be a Part of Our Next DPS Citizens Academy

Do you want to learn more about the inner-workings of the Police and Fire Departments? Would you like to see the City from high atop a Southlake fire ladder truck and receive expert training in firearms at the gun range? If so, then you need to sign up for our next DPS Citizens Academy.

Applications are now being accepted.  The Southlake Citizens Academy program is designed to provide members of the community with a working knowledge of the Police and Fire Departments.

Academy attendance increases awareness about public safety. Academy graduates gain valuable insight into each department while often building lifelong relationships in the process.

Classes meet once a week for approximately 10-weeks beginning in September, 2016. Academy members will gain knowledge and have lots of fun through classroom participation and many hands-on activities including: weapons demonstrations at the firing range, participation in a controlled burn, fingerprinting, use of police and fire equipment, and ride-outs with each department.

Space is limited, so submit your DPS Citizens Academy application soon.

If you have any questions, contact our public education team (Renni Burt or Valerie Snyder) at
