citizen's police academy
The Citizen’s Police Academy seeks to foster a relationship between the Socorro Police Department and members of the Socorro community. Participants will be offered a chance to understand the multiple aspects of police work in its entirety, including all of the different units and divisions, and learn how officers do their jobs as well as the guidelines they must abide by according to law. To apply, interested parties must print and fill out the application, as well as the waiver of liability and the waiver of release, then return it to Police Headquarters. Applicants must be at least 18 years of age and are subject to background checks.
The Neighborhood Watch program intends to include members of the community in the efforts to provide safety and security to the City of Socorro. No one knows the community better than its own members, and local efforts to keep our community safe will work in unison with the Socorro Police Department. Members of the Neighborhood Watch will work as an extension of the police department in ensuring the prohibition of crimes such as vandalism and burglary, by reporting any suspicious behaviors to Socorro PD.
