So what goes on with the Citizen Police Academy? A description on the City of Duluth's website gives some insight:
"Citizen Police Academy offers citizens both in-field and in the classroom instruction regarding different tactics, operations, and divisions within the Duluth Police Department. There will be multiple opportunities for questions to gain a better understanding of Duluth Police practices and procedures, and the reasons for them. Our goal is to unite our citizens and police officers as we work together to create safe Duluth for all."
Applicants will commit to Wednesday evenings - from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM - starting March 8 and lasting through May 24.
Duluth Police Chief Mike Ceynowa adds:
"The Citizen Police Academy is a great way to foster relationships between the community and our officers. It give attendees the opportunity to get hands on experience and understanding about daily functions at Duluth Police Department (sic)."
