Program Overview

Application and Waivers

The Yeadon Citizens Police Academy will create a challenging atmosphere, and provide residents/cadets with an inside look at what it takes to be a police officer. This program will create confidence, self-discipline, physical security and fitness awareness, and foster team-building mindsets, while bringing you into the world of policing. Instructors are police officers with a strong desire to open lines of communication with those we swear to protect and serve, to create positive police and public interactions, so that a deeper understanding of policing can serve to foster a stronger bond with citizens and their police officers.

Applications must be submitted by Monday, September 13, 2021 for consideration.

Applications may be submitted via email to or drop off your application in person to Yeadon Borough Police HQ at Church Lane and Baily Road, Yeadon, PA 19050.
