The Citizens Police Academy Alumni Association (CPAAA) is a police department sanctioned organization that works with the Community Resource Officer to support community programs like Blue Santa, National Night Out, Safety Events, and many other programs. They are often the first responders to assists when needed in any emergency. Many CPAAA members volunteer to work in jobs internal to the police department.
All volunteer groups wear special attire that defines their volunteer group. They are recruited through our VIPS Program. Volunteer hours are reported monthly through our VIPS Volunteer Coordinator.
