Citizens Academy

The Citizen's Academy is an interactive 12-week program that runs on Tuesday evenings at 6:00 - 8:30 PM from August 29 - November 14, 2023.  Classes are free!

Participants meet once each week to learn about and interact with Police Department employees, everyone from the Chief of Police to detectives and even our beloved K-9’s. Topics of discussion include; Patrol Operations, K-9, Narcotics, Investigations, Firearms/Officer Survival, Use of Force, Traffic Enforcement, SWAT and Animal Control to name just a few. We encourage all of your questions and seek to provide an environment where the community can become not only better engaged with our agency but more knowledgeable about the inner workings of law enforcement. There is a lot going on these days and public education and collaboration is a continued desire of the Auburn Police Department.

After attending a minimum of 8 classes you will be scheduled for a ride-along with one of our officers based upon your schedule. You MUST attend 9 of the 12 sessions in order to graduate at the end. If you cannot commit to this, please hold off on signing up and come back for the next Citizen's Academy when your schedule is more free.

Applicants must pass a background check prior to being admitted to the class. 

Applications for the Fall 2023 Citizens Academy are now closed.
