The Tomball Police Department began 2003 by inaugurating the Citizen’s Police. All academy graduates were provided with instruction, demonstration and hands on guidance in many of the following law enforcement activities:
Felony and Misdemeanor patrol stops
Crime scene investigation
Simulations and live fire house activities
F.A.T.S. (Fire Arms Training Simulator)
School related crime
Trauma in Law Enforcement
Dispatch function and communications
This inclusion of the community into what the Tomball Police Department Officer’s and personnel experience, on a daily basis, was a worthwhile and fulfilling opportunity, for both the departmental personnel and the community. The response has been extremely positive, and the program in the community has been rewarding.
More information will be posted as it becomes available for the next Citizen's Police Academy.
