Grove Citizens Police Academy Alumni Association
The Grove Citizens Police Academy Alumni Association volunteers represent a strong partnership between law enforcement and the community they serve. These volunteers go through training to gain insight into all aspects of the police department, learning about everything from crime scene investigation to traffic safety and community outreach programs. They work alongside police officers, assisting the department with tasks such as fingerprinting and record keeping, providing administrative support, and participating in ride-alongs with patrol officers. In addition to their valuable contribution to the police force, Citizen Police Academy volunteers also serve as a bridge between citizens and law enforcement by building trust and encouraging positive relationships within the community. The dedication of these volunteers is instrumental in maintaining public safety while also fostering stronger connections between communities and their local police departments.
