Teen - Citizen's Police Academy

The Huntersville Police Department offers a Teen Citizen Police Academy.  It is five day program held Monday through Friday in August.  The hours are from 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Huntersville Police Department located at 9630 Julian Clark Avenue, Huntersville, NC.  In keeping with our organizational values “Honor, Professionalism and Dedication to Duty,” the Huntersville Police Department’s Teen Citizen Police Academy is designed to nurture public trust through informing our teens of the crucial role the police department serves in the community.  Although the Teen CPA is not designed to train citizens to be police officers, it does serve as an opportunity for teens interested in a law enforcement career, to have a better understanding of what that career would entail.   

2018 Dates:     August 13-17 from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.


The Academy is held without cost to the participants. When a new program is announced for enrollment, each participant must complete a 2018 Teen Citizen's Police Academy Application (PDF), which can be obtained online or by emailing Sergeant Brad Habenicht. All applications should be completed and submitted to the Huntersville Police Department by the designated deadline. The class size will be limited and if needed, a selection process will be used to balance the class.
