Mission

The Collierville Citizens Police Association (CCPA) is an all volunteer, community based, citizen supported non-profit organization. Our mission is to encourage positive citizen involvement with Collierville Police Department (CPD) officers and staff. We support Citizen Police Academy classes and we organize and host events designed to foster and maintain productive relations with area businesses and citizens. Our goal is to educate the public concerning the efforts of local police and to create more opportunities for officers to interact with citizens. The end result being a safer and more rewarding sense of community. Donations to CCPA go 100% to Collierville Police Department community programs, officer resources and training.

Background The first Citizens Police Academy class brought police officers and citizens into discussions concerning how the community and the department could improve relations and boost the effectiveness of law enforcement through a better understanding of how officers and the community view enforcement policies and procedures. The exchange of views led the department to assign a liaison with the citizen group whose concerned members chartered the Collierville Citizens Police Association non-profit to support their local police department. Support includes recognition of department efforts, volunteer assistance in Police Academy classes and funding support of department needs in training and equipment. It was determined that officers and board members of the organization would receive no remuneration and that all academy graduates would be eligible members. 
Impact
We met a big goal in 2016! We funded Trauma Kits for all 100 officers (and two K-9s.) Distribution included training and improved access to medical supplies with tourniquets and chest seals. This follows the national campaign "Stop The Bleed" and equips on-the-scene officers to better handle the immediate medical needs of fellow officers and the public. The CCPA thanks the Collierville Community Fund for a grant of over $5300.00. 
 
Thanks to the generosity of our membership and donations thru the Community Foundation of Greater Memphis, we met our first targeted goal of 2017! The CCPA purchased non-lethal Airsoft guns to be used in current officer training and specifically utilized by the Strategic Tracking and Recovery Team exercises. The six pistols, three shotguns and three patrol rifles are non-lethal copies of the officers' service weapons, identical in operation and cleaning. The donation has reduced training expenses by reducing ammunition costs and the need for live fire training exercises. Most importantly, it provides realistic training.  
 
 
 
Goals for 2018 
 
1. Funding for Collierville Police Challenge Coins as used by the military, police and fire departments. Coins are awarded for special recognition as well as traded with other organizations to show division recognition and camaraderie.  Challenge Coins are designed to distinguish divisions (for instance SWAT, Patrol or STAR,) to honor officer dedication and have been shown to boost morale. Approximate cost for initial production is $3000. 
 
2. Continued funding for Citizen Police Academy classes including uniform shirts, manuals, certificates, awards and graduation. Approximate cost is $1400. 
Needs
1. Challenge Coins. These are small medallions bearing an organization's insignia or emblem and carried by the organization's members, generally military or police. Coins are awarded for special recognition and traded with other agencies. They honor officer dedication and have been shown to boost morale. Many police departments issue the coins and we would like to show support of Collierville officers by starting the program locally. 
 
2. Police Academy Classes. The association depends on tax-deductible donations from citizens and local businesses to fund academy polo shirts for 30 students in each class, certificates of participation, awards, refreshments and graduation. The estimated cost of one academy class for 6 to 8 weeks is $1400. Corporate donations can be earmarked for a particular expense and are acknowledged in the community. 
 
Previous classes have been enhanced by local businesses funding student uniform shirts and graduation cookouts. The organization welcomes offers of service and materials as well; printing, classroom supplies or refreshments.

Comments
Organization Comments The CCPA is a small non-profit existing solely to support the Collierville Police Department in its community activities and officer training. The entity is all volunteer with no paid or salaried staff, no office space and no equipment. Activity in 2014 was limited to a full re-organization of the membership and board. Simultaneously, Citizen Police Academy classes, offered since 2001 were delayed to 2015 so that the department could facilitate new equipment upgrades and internal training. In 2015, classes were resumed and new community efforts were initiated for citizen engagement and program funding.
