The Roanoke Citizens' Police Academy Alumni Association, RCPAAA, is open to those who have graduated from the Roanoke Citizens' Police Academy. Dues are only $20 a year. We have a variety of volunteer opportunities to help our Police Department. The past volunteer successes have involved handling traffic control during several city events. In the springtime, we assist with the Dining Dash-5K and Fun Run and help with crowd control and traffic at Roanoke's Third Rocks Independence Day Celebration and the annual Celebrate Roanoke Festival.
During the Christmas season, the Alumni Association assists the Police Department in building their Christmas float for the annual Old Fashioned Downtown Christmas Parade and Event and work with officers to organize the donation, wrapping, and delivery of gifts to less fortunate families during our yearly Santa Cops Event. Our newest ventures include fundraising, assisting in the emergency dispatch center, and working with the Police Department as Citizens On Patrol.
Meetings are held at the Roanoke Police Department on the first Tuesday of each month at 7 p.m.
