The academy is a window into the operations of the Texas City Police Department for citizens who are interested in how their police department serves their community. The academy gives participants an introspective view and firsthand experience with the many divisions in the department to include;

  • S.W.A.T.
  • Criminal investigation division
  • Crime scene investigation
  • K-9
  • Drone Program
  • Bicycle Patrol
  • Crisis Negotiations
  • Active Violence Incidents

The goal of the academy is to create a better understanding of what your TCPD do for you. The intent, in part, is to foster better cooperation and communication with the community. The academy is approximately 10 weeks long and meets once per week.

Police Academy Alumni Association

Those who attend the academy are eligible to join the Texas City Citizens Police Academy Alumni Association, which organizes volunteer activities with the Police Department. These are activities that assist in building and sustaining good public relations. Members of the police academy alumni also have the opportunity to support Texas city police officers during training events as role players.
