Program Overview
Fremont Police Department’s Community Police Academy was developed to build partnerships with the community. The academy offers a transparent overview into the department’s structure, services, and personnel.

Classes
The academy is an educational experience taught primarily in a classroom setting. Classes are lecture based with some role-playing exercises. Academy participants are not expected to perform actual police officer duties and may elect to not take part in any of the practical exercises.

Education
Participants attend a three-hour class, one night a week for nine weeks. Participants learn about:
  • Communications
  • Social Media
  • Crime prevention
  • Criminal law
  • Critical incidents
  • Firearms training 
  • Gangs
  • Hiring process
  • Narcotics
  • Patrol operations

Applicant Requirements
Community Police Academy classes are limited to a maximum of 30 students.

Participants in the Community Police Academy are granted access to restricted law enforcement facilities. Consequently, the Fremont Police Department maintains the right to disqualify any applicant without notification of cause.  Applicants will undergo a background check, to include digital fingerprinting (LiveScan) and a records check, at no cost to the applicant. Applicants previously convicted of a felony will be disqualified. Misdemeanor convictions will be considered on a case by case basis.
