Quotes from Cedarwood residents who have attended this program:

“A few years ago I attended the Waltham Citizens Police Academy and it was SO much fun, interesting and informative. It made me feel more connected to Waltham. I was recently at the station registering my bicycle and picked up the flyer. It would be great to let our neighbors know about this course”

“I also attended the CPA and thought it was excellent. Lots and lots of good information engagingly presented and, at times, even funny! I recommend it to anyone and everyone.”
