SBPD Taking Applications for the Next Citizen’s Academy

The Citizen’s Academy is a great way to learn about the Santa Barbara Police Department, police work, and our community. During the nine-week program participants will be exposed to police training, investigative techniques, and technology. They will also have the opportunity to ride-along with officers on patrol.

Classes will be held weekly on Fridays from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. until June 29th at the Santa Barbara Police Department. This program is very popular and class size is limited. There is no cost to participate. For more information please contact Officer Jon Reyes at (805) 897-3748 or, or visit
