The Ripon Police Department Community Police Academy is a nine-week program designed to educate members of our community about law enforcement in our community through various methods of instruction including lectures, activities, discussions and scenario training. In addition to learning about law enforcement and community service, students will have the opportunity to explore new career opportunities and develop relationships that will last well beyond the course.

Applications for the academy will be accepted from Aug. 1 through Aug. 31. The academy will run on Wednesday nights from 6:00-8:00 PM, with one Saturday class at our range facility. The classes will start on Sept. 18 and run through Nov. 13.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we are unable to hold the Community Academy at this time. Once restrictions have been lifted, we will restart the program.
