Citizen Police Academy


Have you ever wondered how your police department is structured, or how they provide services to the community and why? Then you should participate in our Citizen Police Academy. This is a nine week course (One night a week) that covers all the inner workings of our agency along with services that we provide. This is your chance to see and hear about the behind the scenes work that is done 24 / 7 from staff members themselves.

Minimum Requirements:

  • Must be 18 years of age or older
  • Must pass a criminal background check
  • Must live, work, or go to school in the Matthews Area


This class is hosted annually starting the second week of January. We open up the application process every November through the end of December. Please monitor our website during this time period if you wish to apply for the next class. If you have any questions, please contact Officer Tim Aycock at: [email protected] or 704.841.6754.
