The Department conducted its first Citizen’s Police Academy in February and March of 2007. The Academy is designed to educate citizens about the operations and functions of the Murrysville Police Department and the overall workings of the criminal justice system. Murrysville police personnel and guest speakers serve as class instructors.

The Citizen’s Police Academy classes are offered based upon interest levels. To be eligible to attend, the applicant must be a Murrysville resident, at least 18 years of age, pass a criminal background check, and sign a liability release form.

When the Citizen’s Police Academy reconvenes, the Murrysville Police Department will publicize the dates and times for anyone wishing to apply.
