The primary goal of the Citizens Police Academy is to foster a better relationship between the community and the police department through training, utilizing the philosophy of a two-way lecture. It is envisioned that class members will:
- Gain an understanding of the operations of the Wylie Police Department
- Develop an awareness and appreciation of the various challenges and decisions faced daily by police officers
- Participate in practical exercises designed to illustrate various situations an officer experiences while on duty.
