The Colerain Township Citizens Police Academy was established in the fall of 1998. The first group of citizens, or “friends” as we now call them, graduated on November 18, 1998. The first class was an 8 week program which has grown to its current 11 week schedule.

The Citizens’ Fire Academy is a free, twelve-week program, designed to give community members an overview of how their local fire department operates, with lots of hands-on participation. Classes meet one night a week from 6 pm to 9 pm (some classes may be shorter or longer). The purpose of the Citizens’ Academy is not to train an individual to be a firefighter, but to produce informed citizens, and build long-lasting relationships with residents in the community.
