Citizen's Patrol Academy

The Bethany Police Department will be conducting a Citizen's Police Academy.  This will be a seven-week program designed to educate our citizens on the functions and capabilities of their police department.  All classes will be taught by our officers and will provide an excellent opportunity for building relationships within our community. 

Due to space constraints, we must limit participants to 15 (fifteen).  Bethany residents, and those that work in Bethany, will be given the first opportunity to attend.  Those with criminal convictions, not including traffic offenses, will not be eligible to attend.

If you would like to apply for the next academy, please complete and email the application page to Lt. Chris Culbreath at or fax to his attention at (405) 789-5015.
