Duluthians invited to apply for Citizen Police Academy

For those interested in understanding police operations, the Duluth Police Department is looking for 25 people to attend the 2023 Citizen Police Academy.

The academy happens every Wednesday from March 8 until May 24, from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.

DPD says the Academy offers citizens both in-field and in-classroom training on different tactics, operations, and divisions within the Department. DPD’s goal is to unite citizens and police officers, working together to create a safe Duluth for everyone.

“The Citizen Police Academy is a great way to foster relationships between the community and our officers,” shared Chief Mike Ceynowa in a press release. “It gives attendees the opportunity to get hands-on experience and understanding about daily functions at DPD.”

Those accepted into the 2023 Citizen Police Academy will be contacted in mid-February with more details.

Duluth Police has more information on the Academy and the application on their website.
