Graduates of the Carmel Police Department's Citizens Academy decided that they wanted to become more involved in the community and with their police department. That desire led to the establishment of the Citizens Academy Alumni Association (CAAA).
Members of the CAAA identified the need to help increase public awareness and community support of the Carmel Police Department. They continue to address this need through their participation in continuing education programs and various volunteer programs. This spirit of "community" reflects their commitment and involvement to increasing our City's quality of life.
Over the years, members have participated in other Citizens Academy classes, the Carmel Police Department's Annual Police Memorial Services, the City's Annual Carmelfest celebration, National Night Out and Safety Day events to name just a few. In addition, many members have been involved in continuing education classes on topics such as Identity Theft and Firearms Safety.
Membership in the Alumni Association is open to all graduates of the Carmel Police Department Citizen Academy who have a desire to become involved in our community.
For additional information, contact Major David Strong 317-571-2746 or Lieutenant Tim Byrne 317-571-2572 at the Police Department or any Association Officer (see below).
Our Mission is to increase public awareness and support of the Carmel Police Department through continuing education and volunteer programs, which reflect our commitment and involvement in our community's quality of life.
