The Pennsylvania State will host a Citizens' Police Academy in Schuylkill County.
The Pennsylvania State Police will host a Citizens’ Police Academy (CPA) in Schuylkill County at the Penn State Agricultural Cooperative Extension, 1202 Ag Center Drive, Pottsville.

The program will expand citizens’ knowledge and understanding of the law and explore police procedure from the perspective of the Pennsylvania State Police.

Students must attend 75% or more of the scheduled classes to be eligible to graduate and receive a certificate.
