Citizens Assisting Police in Apex (CAPA) members assist the Apex Police Department, in support roles and without pay, in a variety of ways. Members do not carry weapons, cannot make arrests and are NOT sworn officers.
CAPA members assist the APD at public events such as Peakfest, Pigfest, Apex Music Festival, Apex Night Out, Christmas with a Cop, Town Parades, the Child/Medical ID Program and more.
Before becoming CAPA member, a volunteer must successfully complete Apex’s Citizens Police Academy (CPA).
CAPA Purpose Statement: To provide support and assistance through volunteerism to the Apex Police Department by partnering together to serve our community with pride and integrity
CAPA Mission Statement: CAPA volunteers are committed to serving the Apex Police Department by assisting in administrative, non-police roles, thereby freeing up Officers so they may more effectively perform their duties. CAPA volunteers are also committed to serving the Town of Apex and community, as ambassadors and diplomats, by providing resources and services that enhance the Peak of Good Living’s quality of life.
