SSFPD Citizen’s Academy Open for Enrollment

South San Francisco, CA    July 18, 2016  Submitted by SSFPD   SSFPD logo color


Have you ever wondered why Police Officers do what they do? Did you know that last year your Police Department made 2,063 arrests and responded to over 71,540 calls for service? You can learn about all of these issues by attending the South San Francisco Police Department Citizens’ Police Academy.

This 12-week course is an opportunity to meet the Police Officers who protect and serve your community, as well as see first hand what types of duties and responsibilities a Police Officer has. Citizens may ask questions, discuss issues and do some of the things that Police Officers do as part of their job.


Each class teaches a different aspect of police work that ranges from the hiring of officers, to SWAT team and K-9 team demonstrations, to firearms training in our own shooting range. Each class is unique, packed with information, and a lot of fun!


Requirements: Work or live in South San Francisco (some exceptions may apply), be 18 years or older, free of any felony convictions, miss no more than two classes, and have an interest in learning!


Classes are in English and are limited to 25 people – call Corporal Jason Pfarr for more information at (650) 829-3931 or by e-mail. The academy runs from August 25th to November 1st (Thursday nights from 6:30 pm to 9:00 pm) and is held at the Police Department located at 33 Arroyo Drive.


Applications are available either at the Police Department, the city of South San Francisco website, or you can request an application by email at . The Department looks forward to seeing you at the Academy! For more information and to print an application, CLICK HERE
