The City of Orland Police Department has established a Citizen’s Police Academy to train and educate the members of the community who are interested. The academy is open to anyone 16 years of age and older. Contact us for the next available Citizen’s Academy . Successful academy graduates will be treated to a graduation ceremony hosted by the Volunteers In Police Services and will have the opportunity to become members of the Orland V.I.P.S.

In order to register for the training contact Officer Ryan Martindale at 530-865-1616 or email rmartindale@cityoforland.com. The Orland VIPS is a dedicated group of citizen volunteers. Those interested in attending the next Citizen’s Academy must complete and return the attached application. To apply you must be 16 years of age, have no misdemeanor convictions within the last year of application and no felony convictions.
