CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - The Cheyenne Police Department (CPD) is hosting a free Citizens Police Academy from Monday, May 3rd through Wednesday, June 2nd, at the Cheyenne Public Safety Center (415 W 18th Street).
The Academy is a special community education and involvement program developed to increase citizen awareness and understanding of the role of law enforcement and is designed for citizens of all backgrounds and occupations.
