What is the Citizens Police Academy? 

The Citizens Police Academy is a free 10 session program designed to give residents and business owners a firsthand look at the Markham Police Department and it’s employees. Candidates must meet the following criteria; Minimum age of 21, resident or business owner in the City of Markham, and no prior felony or disqualifying misdemeanor arrests.             

The Academy meets from 7:00 pm until 9:00 pm, one night per week, at the Old City Council chambers but may meet at other local sites as required. Using both hands-on and classroom instruction, each session focuses on various aspects of police work. During the Academy, participants will be given an opportunity to ride with a Markham Police Officer during a shift, and observe the inner working of the communications center.
