Citizen’s Police Academy

The Bartlesville Police Department is a traditional law enforcement agency providing services normally undertaken by a municipal department. The primary functions are crime prevention and suppression, investigation of criminal activity, recovery of property, and apprehension of offenders.

Patrol activity is used for crime prevention and enforcement of traffic and other ordinances of the City. The Department operates a Patrol Division, a Services Division, a Criminal Investigations Division and a Training Division. It provides consolidated police, fire, and emergency medial dispatch, including an E911 system, parking enforcement, records and identification, animal control, and a detention facility.

Citizen’s academy

Ultimately, it is hoped that the cooperation and understanding generated by the Citizen’s Police Academy will assist the community in its fight against crime.

Goals of the program include:

  • To encourage attendance at and help provide funds for the “Bartlesville Citizen’s Police Academy.”
  • To enhance the relationship between our community and our Police Department.
  • To provide community support to the Department.
  • To develop a trust between our citizens and our police.
