Citizen Police Academy
Application for Admission
Due to the sensitive nature of some subjects being presented in the Thornton Police Citizens’ Academy, a criminal history background check will be conducted on all individuals applying for attendance into the Academy. Individuals found to possess a criminal history will be individually evaluated as to the appropriateness of their attendance in the Academy.
Attendance by individuals possessing a felony conviction will be denied. The Thornton Police Department reserves the right to deny attendance based upon adverse criminal history information, or for any other reason
