Southern Summit Citizens Police Academy


The Copley, Barberton and Norton Police Departments are proud to present a program that provides insight to the public on the responsibilities and operations of your local Police Department. Our 10th Academy will begin March 23, 2017.

We have designed the Southern Summit Citizens Police Academy to accomplish several goals. The most important goal is to open channels of communication between the citizen's and their local Police Department. Additionally, we want to develop an understanding of the police role within the community. The objective of the Academy is not to make police officers out of the graduates, but to make them better informed citizens with an accurate knowledge of law enforcements many responsibilities and functions.

The Southern Summit Citizens Police Academy is a twelve week program that will be held  each Thursday evening, from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. In each class session, instructors will provide guidance and information concerning a particular area of law enforcement. Attendees will have an opportunity to experience how the police department functions in the community with some hands-on training.

Requirements for participants include:

  • Be at least 18 years of age.
  • Have no criminal history other than minor traffic violations (background checks will be performed).
  • Be physically able to participate in active class trainings.
  • Commit to attend 12 weekly 3-hour training sessions.

Copley Township Community Perspective Survey


Dear Copley Resident,

We appreciate your time and consideration in completing this survey.  The survey needs to be completed by December 31, 2016.

Your answers to the survey questions will help the Copley Township Board of Trustees evaluate the community improvement perspectives of our residents and provide public input for their consideration as to whether to create a Copley Community Improvement Corporation.

A Copley Community Improvement Corporation would serve as a community and economic development organization to actively develop and implement certain portions of the Township's Long Term Growth, Quality of Life, and Preservation Strategies.

This survey will be used to gather your responses, and will be kept anonymous and confidential.  A cumulative anonymous report will be made available to the Trustees, by our Consultants, who are assisting us in this process.
