Richardson Citizen Police Academy Alumni Association

A Non-Profit Supporting the Richardson Police Department

The Richardson Citizen Police Academy Alumni Association, Inc. (RCPAAA) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) founded in 1993 to support the Richardson Police Department. All graduates of the Richardson Citizen Police Academy are eligible to join.

As citizen ambassadors to the Richardson Police Department (RPD), the RCPAAA assists the police department with volunteer activities and promotes the RPD within the community. Some activities include the semi-annual “Electronics Recycling and Paper Shredding” event that is held each Spring and Fall. Children of RPD employees may apply for scholarships that the Alumni Association awards to those about to enter a college or university. And help with medical bills for retired K9s is provided by the RCPAAA.

Mission Statement

To serve as advocates for the Richardson Police Department by enhancing the relationship between law enforcement and the community.

Spring Electronics Recycling & Paper Shredding

Saturday, October 28, 2023, from 10:00 until 2:00 pm

Parking Lot East of old Sears building, East Belt Line, and Plano Road

We accept all types of electronics with the exception of old tube-type TVs and bulky CRT computer monitors. Our paper shredding is intended to help protect you against Identity Theft. Please do not bring general paper items such as magazines and newspapers. Ordinary paper such as these can be placed in blue recycling bags and set out for pickup on the regular Recycling Day for your neighborhood. Only bring paper that you want destroyed to protect yourself.  Please remove the paper from 3 ring binders prior to arriving at the site. Paper clips and staples are fine.

We must limit the amount of paper you can bring for shredding to no more than five (5) boxes. If you have more than 5 boxes, we will ask for a minimum donation of $5/box in excess of this limit.

While this is a free event, it is a fundraiser to help us support the Richardson Police Department. Donations will be solicited.

Many attendees arrive an hour before the event opens and must wait in line. You can avoid the early rush by arriving after 11:30 AM. 

For more details, see our Fundraising page.
