Citizens' Police Academy

The Citizen's Police Academy is one of the programs the Brenham Police Department uses to build a partnership between the officers and the community. Classes are held annually to educate interested people about the inner workings of the department. Through the use of tours, lectures, demonstrations and "hands-on" experiences, CPA participants gain insight into the policies and procedures of the department. Citizens in the department can ride with police officers during normal patrol shifts, which gives participants a first-hand look at what officers deal with on a daily basis. An example of topics covered includes Patrol Procedures, Criminal Investigations, Hostage Negotiations, Narcotics Enforcement, and D.W.I. Enforcement.

The class begins in February and is held on Thursday nights lasting approximately 12 weeks. It is held at the Brenham Police Station and is open, free of charge to anyone who lives in Washington County and is at least 18 years of age. The resulting partnership between citizens and officers furthers our efforts to improve the quality of life for everyone in our community. For more information about the CPA program, contact Corporal Alex Saenz or call 979-337-7325.

One of the benefits of the Citizen's Police Academy (CPAAA) is the strong partnership that is built between alumni of the program and the department. The Citizen's Police Academy Alumni Association is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the quality of life in this community by supporting the department.

Citizens Advisory Board

The Brenham Police Citizen Advisory Board (CAB) was created to act as a community resource for the Police Chief in the formation of strategies, development of community policing concepts and programs, to serve as an advisory body on certain police matters, fostering and enhancing public transparency and trust, and increasing public awareness.
