The CFUL's Community Police Academy will begin in 2021.
Community Police Academy
The CFUL's Community Police Academy will model a Citizens Police Academy, facilitated by community members for new recruits from police departments throughout Central Florida.
It is our belief that law enforcement are unable to fully protect and serve a community which they are unfamiliar with. As such, the CFUL's two-week immersive community academy will provide police recruits with deep and nuanced understanding of the local African American community.
At the end of our workshop, both new police recruits and community members will receive a certificate acknowledging their participation as either a student or educator in our program.
