Iowa Quad Cities Citizens Police Academy

Every February, in cooperation with other area Scott County police agencies and the Scott County Sheriff's Office, the Bettendorf Police Department sponsors a Citizens Police Academy. The Academy is an eight week program designed to give each participant a basic knowledge of how their law enforcement agencies operate.

Each participant has the opportunity to fire a police issued handgun, tour the Scott County Jail and ride along with an on-duty officer or deputy.

For more information, please contact Community Service Officer, Judy Welch at (563) 344-4046 or visit online http://www.bettendorf.org/police/
