More attendees needed for 2022 Citizen Police Academy in Duluth

The Duluth Police Department is looking for more people to attend the 2022 Citizen Police Academy.

Classes run every Wednesday from 6:00 – 9:00 p.m. from March 9 to May 25. Attendees will learn about both in-field and in the classroom instruction regarding different tactics, operations and divisions.

Some of those opportunities include:

  • K-9 Demonstrations
  • Patrol Operations
  • Investigations Division
  • De-escalation Tactics
  • Use of Force Discussion

The department will also answer questions to help individuals gain a better understanding of Duluth Police practices and procedures.

“As we are planning this year’s CPA, we are closely following the trends in COVID to ensure participant safety,” said Chief Mike Tusken. “The CPA helps build relationships, allows citizens a better opportunity to understand certain operations and divisions within DPD, while also getting hands-on police experience.”

Chief Tusken said the goal is to unit citizens and police officers and work together to create a safe Duluth for everyone.
