Citizen Academy


Citizens' Law Enforcement Academy

We currently hold the Citizen's Law Enforcement Academy every other year.  The 2016 Citizens' Law Enforcement Academy concluded on March 19th, 2016, so expect the next one to begin in January of 2018.
The Missoula Police Department has hosted a Citizens' Law Enforcement Academy (CLEA) since 1993 inviting local citizens, business owners, fraternal organization members, etc. to participate.

This academy includes an overview of our department's activities including presentations from officers about our many programs including, but not limited to:
In addition, we try to provide some hands-on applications for our participants including a ride-a-long with officers and a training simulator application.


The response to the CLEA has been phenomenal, and we have had very positive feedback from our participants. This eight-week program has provided Missoula citizens with a realistic view of their Missoula Police Department's activities, challenges, and accomplishments.


We are not accepting applications for CLEA at this time.
