Citizens Police Academy

The Trophy Club Police Department (TCPD) hosts the Citizens Police Academies (CPA) each year. The CPA teaches residents about the “real” world of Law Enforcement and how the TCPD operates in Trophy Club. Classes run for 10 weeks and will not only educate residents but also dispel myths that many of our citizens hear around Town from friends and neighbors, as well as address the sensationalism seen on the television. Come learn what Community Policing is all about and how our style is different from other towns.

Training

If there are questions that you have always wanted to ask, this is the place to come. Learn how investigations are conducted and what actually goes on around Town. Once your training is complete, you will be certified to join the Trophy Club Emergency Volunteer Association (TCEVA), a volunteer organization that helps the Police and Fire Departments with different activities. If interested, further training is available to become a member of Citizens on Patrol (COP) group as well as the Citizen’s Emergency Response Team (CERT).
