The Community Affairs Section of the Cocoa Police Department coordinates the Citizen's Police Academy (CPA). Our desire is to develop a style of policing that reflects a collaborative effort between the police department and the community. The CPA gives residents a better understanding of how the department operates, and the decisions faced by police officers every day.
To increase understanding and effectiveness of citizen partnerships with law enforcement through education.
To become more involved in volunteer programs and neighborhood crime watch groups.
To be a wonderful opportunity for citizens to get a closer look at the inner workings of a police department
To find out what they can do to help prevent crime.
