Theft prevention starts before you even leave your vehicle Smash-and-grab thieves typically aren’t criminal masterminds who craft clever schemes to swipe your stuff. Most are casual opportunists. They see something they like, so they break in and take it. So before you get out of your car, make sure your valuables are out of sight. Never leave these things lying out on your seats, dashboard or floor: • Phone • Purse or wallet • Laptop (or its bag) • A briefcase or backpack • Shopping bags • An MP3 player or other small electronics • CDs if you still use them • Cash – yes, even loose change/coins • Your keys – it actually happens!

The Culver City Police Department Citizen’s Police Academy is designed to educate residents and local citizens on the various aspects of law enforcement. It is for those interested in learning more about how the Culver City Police Department functions and operates. There are many misconceptions about police duties and the Academy will help dispel these notions and allow community members a closer look at their police department. The goal of the program is to open the lines of communication and encourage interaction between our police officers and the community. Graduates of the Academy will acquire a solid foundation of public safety information to share with others in the community. The Citizen’s Police Academy is not intended to train the participants to be police officers, but rather it is designed for those interested in a deeper understanding of the various challenges and decisions that a Culver City Police Officer deals with on a daily basis. The academy is eight weeks and will begin this summer, dates to be announced. This includes the opportunity to attend a patrol ride-along. The course curriculum will include the Criminal Justice System, Development of a Police Officer, Tactical Options, Traffic Enforcement, Special Responses, Forensics, Investigations, and Community Preparedness. Persons selected to attend the Citizen’s Academy will be notified by mail and/or phone at least two weeks prior to the beginning of classes. The selection process requires a limited background check due to security concerns and the sensitive nature of some of the material. All applications will be retained and considered for future classes. Download your application online. Print and complete the attached application, and review the program outline. You can then either mail in or drop of your completed applications to the Culver City Police Department attention Lieutenant Troy Dunlap. Applications must be received by July 3rd, 2018 for consideration. Call (310) 253-6258 if you have any questions.

The Culver City Police Department recently learned of a conversation thread in the City's largest community Facebook Group in which a Police Department employee used their personal Facebook account to make comments that offended some members of the group. The Culver City Police Department respects the First Amendment rights of all to express their personal thoughts, opinions and beliefs. City and Department policy dictates that employees are allowed to engage in digital forums, such as Facebook Groups, at their own discretion--as long as they do not present themselves as speaking on behalf of the Department or the City itself. The comments of this Police Department employee do not represent the views of the City and/or the Police Department. The Culver City Police Department has a long and proud tradition of service to the residents, businesses and visitors of Culver City. We have earned the trust and support of our community and City leaders. We do not take that trust and support for granted. We understand that it must be earned and renewed on a daily basis. We are dedicated to serving the needs of everyone in this community. There are close to 40,000 residents in our community, not all of which will always agree with one another. But, if we find that we disagree with our neighbor, I urge us all to act, speak and type with thoughtfulness and empathy toward one another. The Culver City Police Department is taking this incident seriously, and if you have any questions, comments or concerns, please contact our Community Relations Lieutenant, Troy Dunlap.
