Community Academy

The Burbank Police Department Community Academy was created to give individuals an opportunity to see how police officers work and gain a better understanding of departmental operations. The Community Academy course is designed to familiarize citizens with the department’s community policing philosophies, internal policies, and the guiding principles of law and ethical conduct governing the delivery of police services within our community. Eligible candidates must live or work in Burbank.




As we continue to learn more each day about the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Burbank Police Department is taking steps to provide the highest level of safety and service, while preserving the health of both police personnel and members of our community. It is our hope that by making certain operational changes, we will help slow the spread of the Novel Coronavirus.

Based on the advice of public officials to avoid congregating in large groups, the Burbank Police Department has decided to suspend the Community Academy until further notice.


We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
