Title
1600 S Academy Bl
Location
On the above date and time officers of the Sand Creek Division were dispatched to a personal robbery that had just occurred in the 1600 block of S Academy Bl. Information was received from the reporting party that two males had just robbed him at gunpoint. The RP was able to provide detailed suspect descriptions and officers quickly flooded the area looking for the suspects. Two CSPD detectives in an unmarked car observed the suspects in the area of 1700 Pepperwood Dr, and called out the information to marked patrol units. After a brief foot pursuit, both suspects were detained and positively identified as the suspects in the robbery. K9 responded and assisted with an article search leading to the recovery of the suspect’s backpack, which contained the victim’s property. Officers later located the gun used in the robbery as well. Both suspects were arrested for Aggravated Robbery.

Status of the Pikes Peak Region Peace Officers’ Memorial and invitation to the groundbreaking ceremony.

On July 13, 2017, the Colorado Springs Parks and Recreation Advisory Board gave unanimous approval for the Master Plan change to the Memorial Park site. On July 18, 2017, the Public Arts Commission approved the reclining lion sculpture by Larry Terrafranca. These approvals allow us to begin construction.

To date, $1.1 million in funds have been raised toward the $1.45 million required to complete construction. On July 12, 2017, the Memorial was awarded a $175,000 matching grant from El Pomar Foundation. Upon raising the remaining $175,000 by December 31, 2017, the El Pomar Foundation will match that amount, for a total of $350,000. The memorial to those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our citizens will then be fully funded.

I invite you to join us for the formal groundbreaking ceremony of the Pikes Peak Region Peace Officers’ Memorial to be held on Friday, July 28, 2017, at 1:00 PM at Memorial Park. The ceremony will be held on the designated site west of the Veterans Memorial (Clock Tower) on the east side of Memorial Park off Union Blvd.

National Night Out enhances the relationship between neighbors and law enforcement while bringing back a true sense of community. Furthermore, it provides a great opportunity to bring police and neighbors together under positive circumstances.”

Throughout the nation, neighborhoods will come together in the form of block parties, festivals, cookouts, and various other community events. NNO is an initiative of enhancing relationships between neighbors and neighborhood groups and law enforcement. Police officers from across the nation will attend these events in an effort to build positive relationships with their communities and to further offer crime prevention measures that neighborhoods can initiate on their own. Ultimately, the goal of National Night Out is bringing back the true sense of community and continuing to build positive relationships, not only with law enforcement, but also with neighbors within your community.

Interested in knowing how those television shows stack up against real world policing?

Find out for yourself!
The Colorado Springs Police Department
announces the next session of the Citizens’ Academy for fall 2017.

What is the CSPD Citizens’ Academy?

The Colorado Springs Police Department Citizens’ Academy educates citizens about the duties and responsibilities of its police officers, policies and procedures of the department, and the citizen’s role in the interaction of citizens and police through a series of classes. In addition to helping the citizens better understand the police department, it in turn helps the police department better understand the citizens and their concerns.
What Topics Are Covered in the Academy?

The Citizens' Academy covers many topics related to law enforcement in our community including: training, the patrol division (basic police equipment, special response team, narcotics, DUI, laws), the communications division (call taking and dispatching), the criminal investigations division (crime scene investigation, major crimes, and financial crimes), gangs, sexual assault, K-9, SWAT, Internal Affairs, and many more.
Participation in a "ride-along" program is also available, where citizens can actually ride along with patrol officers to see the world through their eyes. Members of the Colorado Springs Police Department will teach the classes; citizens that complete all the classes receive a Certificate of Completion at the final session.
Where does the Academy meet?

The Citizens' Academy is an 11-week course which meets once a week on Thursdays from 6:00PM to 9:00PM. The Academy is held at the various police facilities throughout the city depending on the type of training being conducted. Although there is no cost to the citizen, a substantial time commitment is required. Citizens are expected to attend all of the sessions.

Who may attend?

Anyone who lives or works in the city of Colorado Springs, is at least 18 years of age, and passes a background investigation may apply for the Citizens' Academy.

How do I apply?

Applications are currently being accepted for the fall 2017 session which begins on Thursday, August 24, 2017. Deadline for applications is August 3, 2017, by 5:00PM. The application form can be found online: https://cspd.coloradosprings.gov/content/citizens-academy.
