There are no physical requirements for most activities and no costs charged to the participants. The CPA provides participants with a unique inside look at the Livermore Police Department and the law enforcement community. Participants will be presented with a variety of topics, including patrol operations, communications, evidence collection, hiring and recruitment, traffic, animal control, laws of arrest, search and seizure, use of force, investigations, crime analysis, terrorism, ethical issues, and many others.
