Member Information and
Welcome graduating class of
the Citizen Police Academy Alumni Association. Your membership
includes endless opportunities for you to serve and give back to
our community. In addition the CPAAA with the Jacksonville Beach
Police Department offers a continuing learning experience with
guided tours and guest speakers just to mention a few.
Director meetings are held the second Tuesday of
every month at 6 p.m. It is open to all members.
CPAAA meetings are held the second Tuesday of every month in the
squad room at 7 p.m. (that's 1900 hours cop speak!) Meetings
consist of current Alumni business followed by a guest speaker.
Alumni may sign up for Commander Corbitt's exciting daily
summary reports by emailing: email@example.com and write
"sign me up for the daily reports" in the text! CMDR Corbitt
will keep you updated on the latest of patrols efforts to keep
the streets of Jacksonville Beach safe.
If you are a current alumni, it is important that we have your current email or mailing address. Please contact Bill
Ostrowski at 904-270-1630 or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org of any changes. The Newsletter team is always looking for new ideas, articles and photos that reflect the activities of the police department and the CPAAA. Feel free to contact the team at email@example.com with your ideas or photos.
Be on the lookout for exciting opportunities to join your fellow
members on guided tours. Last year, we have toured the Otttis
Castle just off of A1A on the way to St. Augustine, Sally Corp.
in Jacksonville and St. Johns County Jail just to name a few.
Lobby Support - Please
help! The alumni are always looking for great volunteers to help
any day of the work week. You can pick from time slots or make a
day of it. The hours are 9 a. m to 5 p. m. on Mondays and 9 a.m.
to 2 p.m. on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays and 9 a.m. to 1
p.m. on Fridays. Contact Maralee Fox for training at
- Helping out the littlest members of our community. Join the
Jacksonville Beach Police Department in serving students of
Duval County as they attend classes within the community. The
Jacksonville Beach Police Department has 6 dedicated part time
School Crossing Guards, who are state certified. Why not be a
member of the team? We need your help to volunteer when the
crossing guards cannot make it into work. This is an important
task, because without the volunteer SCG members of the CPAAA a
uniformed officer would have to be pulled from the street to
work the post. This means less officers looking for the really
bad guys. In addition to providing a much needed service to the
officers protecting our streets you will be state certified each
year. This means you could work anywhere in Florida as SCG. For
more information on this program, contact Dan Fox our Community Service Coordinator at DFox@jaxbchfl.net for training information.
- Getting back to nature! Are you an animal lover! The JBPD
Animal Control Officer is looking for some caring hearts to help
feed and walk lost and abandoned animals while in the care and
control of the police department. For more information contact
Kelsey Eberle at 904-247-6167.
- Learn about the inner workings of police department by
volunteering in Administration! They need help with data entry,
filing records, scanning documents, and picking up equipment
purchases for the department. Volunteer a few hours one day a
week or each morning you set the tone. Contact any of the
Administration Secretaries at 904-247-6343.
Crime Prevention - Help take a bite out crime in
your community. The alumni are looking for volunteers to assist
with the Bicycle Registration Program. Each year an average of
300-400 bicycles are turned in to the police department as lost,
found or stolen recovered property. Many of them are never
returned to the owner. With the Bicycle Registration Program,
Officers are able to quickly identify registered bicycles and at
times able to return those to the owners before they even know
they are missing. This is an ongoing program and event times and
days vary. For more information contact Maralee Fox for training
- Join fellow members as they patrol the beaches of Jacksonville
Beach informing residents and visitors of the cities ordinances
and helping answer questions. Patrolling members will use an ATV
to drive on and along the beach issuing verbal warnings and
answering citizen's questions. So get out and have some fun in
the sun while helping the community! Contact Susan Ryan for
more information at 904-242-0884.

ongoing volunteer opportunities available to you at the police
