In 1993, a group of individuals started the first Alvin Citizens Police Academy Alumni Association (ACPAAA) and there have been 11 classes since then. We have even had 6 ministers in the City of Alvin and surrounding areas take the class . They did this in order to start a Chaplains program for the Alvin Police Department which has been very successful. The Alvin Citizens Police Academy is an organization dedicated to informing the citizens of Alvin about the workings of the Alvin Police Department and all its divisions. They are a 501(c)3 organization so all donations are tax deductible.
This voluntary program gives citizens the opportunity to help solve crime in their neighborhoods. By registering your exterior facing security camera, you help build a secure database that allows police to notify you directly in the event a crime occurs in your neighborhood and ask you to determine if any suspicious activity was caught on your camera. Click here to register your camera.
The Camera Registration Program is designed to collect locations of private exterior-facing cameras in neighborhoods. This program does NOT give police access to your camera system. Nor does it place cameras on your home. It allows the department to build a list of citizens with existing cameras who are willing to help in the event video may be available for an incident in their neighborhoods.
Alvin Police Department and Alvin Code Compliance has teamed up to present Operation Clean Sweep. This program targets the most common code violations such as high grass/weeds, junked vehicles, broken fences, and other unsightly nuisances. The Patrol Division, during routine patrol, will identify these violations and notify the responsible party by the use of a door hanger. This door hanger identifies the issue and the date of notification. If you receive a door hanger notification you have 3 business days before Code Compliance will do a follow-up. If the violation has been corrected no further action will be taken, if however, the violation still exists then Code Compliance will begin their normal process which may culminate in a citation being issued for the violation. This program’s intent is that once a violation is identified that the responsible person will take steps to correct the violation and that no further enforcement action will have to occur.
This program, adapted from a Dallas PD program, is a community based program that allows the public to interact with officers in a casual, leisurely atmosphere so that citizen concerns that would not normally have been brought to the attention of the Police Department through traditional means, can be addressed. Officers will be at different sponsored locations throughout the city once each month, and we invite you join us for a cup of coffee and tell us your concerns, or simply sit and visit.
The The Alvin Police Department, in cooperation with Bay Area Council On Drugs and Alcohol (BACODA), provides a safe way to dispose of unwanted or expired prescription medications with "no questions asked". A "drop box" is available in the front lobby of the police department for depositing these unwanted medications. Plastic bags are provided for people to empty their prescription bottles into, then drop into the "drop box". The medications are later taken for incineration, keeping them off the streets and out of our city's water system. The Alvin Police Department has collected thousands of pounds of medications since the inception of the program in 2014.
No syringes, needles or lancets are accepted.
The "drop box" is available 24/7.
The Shepherd Program was initiated in 1998 in an effort to gather information and develop a coordinated response to those citizens with Alzheimer's disease. Nearly 4 million Americans suffer from Alzheimer's and they can easily become disoriented, lost and reported as missing by family members. This program allows for critical information and photographs to be on file with the Police Department. This proves invaluable in the event that someone is found and appears disoriented or is reported as missing by loved ones. Shepherd program information packet can be found here. Questions or forms for the program can be directed to Lt. Bruce Trent.
The Are You Okay? Program was initiated to develop a network of support for the elderly, home-bound and other challenged residents in our community. This service provides valuable assistance to these special people, offering them comfort and reassurance, daily phone calls and the thought that others do care about them. For more information on the program contact Sara Cruz at 832-577-2685.
Some benefits of this program: Seniors have been alerted regarding transient criminals who prey upon elderly homeowners, the provision of fans, portable heaters, blankets, smoke alarms and assistance with utility bills. Meals are even provided occasionally.
Glenna Winn, the program's original coordinator, was 76 years young when she began with us and, in 1999, at the age of 84, received the Governor's "Senior Volunteer of the Year" award from then-Governor George W. Bush.
