There will be no sessions on March 9th & 16th and April 20, 2014 due to spring break and Easter Sunday.

Also, with the goal of fostering better understanding of the department and furthering the department’s partnership with the community.

The Ball State University Police Department’s training team has prepared a comprehensive program of instructions. The program will provide citizens a history of policing and the agency, an overview of the officer hiring and training process, and an orientation to various divisions, units, and functions of the department. I would like to extend a personal invitation to you or your designee to enroll in the Citizens Police Academy. Attached you will find an application. Please return the completed application to Corporal Michael J. Baker Sr.. Please contact Corporal Baker at 285-3009 or e-mail at, if you have any questions concerning the academy.
