[ARCHIVED] 12 Graduate from Pocatello Police Dept.’s Citizen Police Academy | 6/23/21

Graduates of the 2021 Citizen Police Academy

Twelve residents are officially graduates of the Pocatello Police Department’s Citizen Police Academy.


During the eight-week course, students learned about police driving techniques, crime scene investigations, use of force training, patrol procedures, and more. The course included hands-on activities and classroom instruction. 


“What we heard from attendees is that their perception of police work changed throughout the class,” said Officer Greg Cates. “Many of them said they had no idea how many different situations an officer can face on a day-to-day basis. Thank you to these residents for taking the time out of their schedules to learn more about what it’s like to be a police officer.”


If you’re interested in signing up for the Citizen Police Academy, the next course is tentatively scheduled for Spring 2022. Residents with questions about the academy can contact Officer Cates at 208-234-6131.
