The Belmont Citizen’s Police Academy Alumni Association (BCPAA) has hosted the Annual Belmont Classic 5K Run/Walk and 1-Mile family Fun run since 2004. The Belmont Classic 5K is a road race open to all ages and is digitally timed on a certified course. Whether you walk or run, it is great fun for all who participate.
The Belmont Classic 5K is the major annual fundraising event for BCPAA. The funds raised are used to purchase items for the police department that are not normally covered under the regular operating budget. Officers can submit requests to the board. Upon approval by board members, items are purchased for the department.
In past years, the money has been used to purchase:
Digital cameras for each patrol shift and the detectives division
Laptop computers for patrol officers to use in their vehicles
Training equipment called Force on Force that provides officers the chance to train in active shooter scenarios and situations that could be encountered on a day-to-day basis
