The class meets weekly on Thursdays from 7-10 p.m. through May 10. There are 11 classes with one ride-along, and a graduation banquet. This free program is open to Colleyville residents and business owners 18 years old or older and is designed to acquaint them with the roles and responsibilities of the department. Participants will observe presentations by the narcotics task force, criminal investigation division, tactical unit, and more.

The deadline for applications is Feb. 12 or until the class is full. Seats are limited.

Graduates may join the Alumni Association and participate in additional training to be eligible as a Citizen on Patrol.
