Community Police Academy

Do officers have ticket quotas? Do they really like donuts? Join us to learn the answers to these questions!

A free program held each Fall and Spring quarter, the Community Police Academy (CPA) is designed to offer a special behind-the-scenes look at our police department operations. You'll gain fascinating insights into our work so that you can help us with innovative solutions for concerns relating to crime, fear of crime, and current challenges. It also affords you an opportunity to provide feedback as to what you want from your UCI Police Department.

A campus-wide registration email is sent at the beginning of Fall and Spring quarters.
