Rio Rancho Police Department Announces Citizen’s Police Academy

The Rio Rancho Police Department is pleased to announce that we are currently accepting student applications for RRPD Citizen’s Police Academy Class 19-01.

The goal of the Citizen’s Police Academy is to keep the Rio Rancho Police Department connected with our community. The academy will offer citizens a greater understanding of all of the services and programs that the Rio Rancho Police Department offers. Our presenters are officers from different divisions across our agency that are out in the community every day providing the great service that we strive for. As citizens learn about our police department, they will have an opportunity to learn more about the people behind the badge, who we are, and what motivates us.

The Citizen’s Police Academy will consist of an eleven week course, one night per week (Thursdays from 6 PM to 9 PM). The start date is March 7, 2019. The course will be comprised of hands-on learning, demonstrations, and varying presentations on topics such as: patrol officer response, K9 Unit, SWAT, investigations, and much more.

The academy will be open to current Rio Rancho residents and/or Rio Rancho business owners and will be limited to 30 students. The deadline to apply is February 15, 2019.

Citizens interested in attending can apply online at or in person at 500 Quantum Rd NE, Rio Rancho NM.
