For registration and further information, please contact Operations-West Bureau, at 213-473-0277.

The ten-week courses are held at various locations within the West Bureau area. The courses conclude with a graduation ceremony.
Details on off-site training locations will be presented during the first class. There is no fee to attend the Community Police Academy. Due to limited class space, candidates are accepted on a first come, first served basis, until each class is filled.
