Fort Dodge Police Department Citizens Academy

The Citizen’s Academy Program launched in 2011 and was comprised of two annual academies. lasting 8 weeks in duration.  Since the start we have continued to have two academies a year with each class filling quickly.  This program has not only allowed us to educate the community but for the community to educate us as well. The program is designed to create a relaxing atmosphere where two way dialogue can easily be achieved; this will be done through bot classroom and active interaction. 

The goals of the program are to: (1) Help you to better understand the resources and programs available, (2) Help each other get to know your public safety partners and for us to know and understand our community and (3) How to work together to most effectively deal with crime and social issues.
