The Aurora Police Department prides itself on our training. APD has one of the most rigorous training programs in the state for officers throughout the year. Our training is developed in alignment with the final report from The President’s Task Force on 21st Century Policing and the concepts of Procedural Justices that ensures actions by our officers are proportional, legal, authorized, necessary and ethical.
APD also focuses on Crisis Intervention and de-escalation training, especially during scenario-based training exercises. APD provides ongoing training and encourages all personnel to participate in advanced training and formal education on a continual basis that is specific to their role and/or specialized unit within the department.
