National Night Out 2021 will be October 5, 2021!
Celina Police officers will be visiting neighborhood block parties during the annual National Night Out (NNO) on Tuesday, Oct. 5th.
Help the Celina Police Department promote police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie. The event is a great way to get to know your neighbors and send a message to would-be criminals that your neighborhood is well-organized and protected. Various neighborhoods will be hosting a neighborhood block party for National Night Out. To find out if your neighborhood has an event planned or to register your event, contact Officer Chase Guidera firstname.lastname@example.org.
Feel free to join us in Downtown Celina's block party on the square!
The Citizens Police Academy (CPA) is a Community Relationship program that will help bridge the gap and strengthen the relationship between the Celina Police Department and the Citizens they serve. During this 10-week course, participants learn about topics ranging from criminal law and patrol tactics to Criminal Investigations. The group may also take a field trip to the Collin County Detention Center. This Academy will help prepare the participants in becoming Ambassadors of the Celina Police Department within their communities.
Applicants must be a Citizen of Celina, City or County, and a minimum age of 18. Enrollment is limited to 30 applicants. Please know that this is our first Academy and those applicants who make it in will be paving the way for future Academies.
