Upon completetion of the Arvada Citizen Police Academy, all graduates are encouraged to continue their involvement with the police department.
One of the primary ways to stay involved is to become a member of the Citizen Police Academy Arvada Alumni association. Dues are minimal, collected yearly. Regular meetings are held with interesting guest speakers.
Alumni members have the opportunity to give back to the Arvada Police Department by participating in cleaning the interior of the patrol cars for the police officers. The police vehicles are the officers' "office," and by participating in detailing the cars, it shows our appreciation for our officers.
In the fall, there is a fun murder mystery dinner, where everyone participates to solve the crime.
In April, the CPAAA helps with the annual Kite Festival.
Many other activities occur during the year, giving the opportunities to be involved, have fun, and interact with others who have the same high regard for our police officers.
