Citizens Academy

The Citizen’s Academy Program launched in 2011 in an effort to build connections between law enforcement and the community. Depending on demand, one or two 8-week sessions are held annually.  The program is designed to create a relaxing atmosphere where two-way dialogue can easily be achieved. Sessions are both classroom-based and on-site at various locations. Check back here for an application when they are available.

The goals of the program are:

  • To help members of the community better understand the public safety resources and programs available and the partnerships that have developed.
  • To get to know your public safety partners and for us to get to know and better understand the needs and concerns of our community.
  • To work together to effectively deal with crime and other important issues that affect our community.
