The DEA Citizens’ Academy Alumni Association, Inc. (“DEACAAA”) is a community-based and supported organization, who’s purpose is to support the vital mission of the Drug Enforcement Administration. The membership is comprised of a cross-section of community and business leaders and is designed to inform and foster understanding of the work of the DEA, and promote a safer society through drug education.
The DEA Citizens’ Academy Alumni Association, though a completely separate entity from the DEA, will adhere to the highest levels of professional ethics with our mission, resources, mandates and statutory limitations of local, state and federal law enforcement.
Each member of the DEA Citizens’ Academy will be a graduate of a DEA appointed and conducted DEA Citizens’ Academy curriculum with a focus on the relevant federal law enforcement issues and future challenges. Only successful DEA Citizens’ Academy graduates are eligible for participation in DEACAAA.
DEACAAA shall meet periodically to update members on federal law enforcement issues of interest to DEA Citizens’ Academy graduates and provide continuing education on state and local law enforcement responsibilities and, upon notice, meet for the resolution of those issues relevant to the proper administration of DEACAAA.
