Littleton Police Citizens Academy
The Littleton Police Citizen’s Academy is a series of classes designed to give community members a peek into the inner workings of the Littleton Police Department. A diverse selection of topics is covered in an effort to give attendees an idea of what, why, and how the police operate.
The goal of the Citizen Academy is to promote a better relationship between the police department and the community it serves and to foster a clearer understanding of a police officer's duties, how the officer carries out those duties, and the end results of the officer's actions. The Citizen Academy is not being held to train citizens as police officers or to exercise police authority of any kind.
For more volunteer opportunities in the police department, visit the Volunteers in Police Service (VIPS) page. For more information, contact the Littleton Police Dept. at 303-795-3875.
The City of Littleton’s Snow Squad provides snow removal for residents who are physically unable to shovel their sidewalks themselves. The city has many citizens who are physically challenged and need help. If you can spare an hour to help a fellow resident whenever there is measurable snow, and are looking for a way to give back to your community, this is a great opportunity.
