The Thousand Oaks Police Department will be offering a Citizen Academy class at the Thousand Oaks Police Station on Olsen Road. This 12 week course is designed to foster relationships between the residents of the Conejo Valley and local law enforcement.  This is an excellent opportunity to learn about your local law enforcement agency, how they operate and what they do for our community. 


The course is free of charge and is held every Wednesday from 6:00 PM until 9:00 PM for 12 weeks. The courses will begin on January 13th and conclude on March 30th. The courses are primarily conducted in a classroom setting at the station with experienced department staff ready to answer your questions. Field trips to the Pre-Trial Detention Facility in Ventura and the Sheriff's Academy are also part of this wonderful program.


If you are interested in taking advantage of this course, please contact us soon.  Classes fill up very quickly. Due to the commitment of resources we need to have at least 25 individuals sign up for the class. For an application please go to website. The downloadable application will be found in the police department section, under Citizen Academy. You must be 18 or older to apply.
