The Community Academy is designed to give individuals an opportunity to see how police officers work, as well as gain a better understanding of departmental operations. This course is designed to familiarize citizens with the department’s community policing philosophy, internal policies, and the guiding principles of law and ethical conduct governing the delivery of police services within our community. Attendees must be at least 18 years of age and live or work in the City of Burbank. Graduates of the Community Academy are eligible to apply to become Burbank Police Department volunteers and assist police personnel in the station.
The academy lasts ten weeks and classes are held once a week (Thursday evenings) from 6:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m and the Burbank Police Station. Classes typically take place twice a year (Spring-April/May & Fall-September).
The Spring Community Academy will run from April 4th through June 6th.
