The program will provide information to the citizens who attend, so they may make informed judgments about the Springdale Police Department, other Law Enforcement Agencies, and police activity. Understanding can dispel suspicions and misconceptions and increase police/community rapport. The Police Department, in turn, becomes more aware of the feelings and concerns of the community through input from the students. This will help to establish open lines of communication and cooperation in our shared goal of achieving the best police service for the citizens of Springdale. It is our hope that the CPA graduates will become partners with us in identifying problems and solutions to the crime issues that are affecting our community.
