Committed to building relationships with the community, the Alameda Police Department (APD) is reopening the popular Citizen Police Academy.

Topics include officer training, patrol procedures, dispatching, traffic, APD’s canine unit, special investigations and more.
The American Red Cross bus will visit Alameda Point Wednesday, Aug. 14, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. The Red Cross asks donors to “make someone whole again. Without A, B and O, we can’t save anybody. You are the #MissingType we need.”
