In the department’s effort to make Shakopee a safe and fun place to live and work, the department constantly strives to enhance its relationship with the community. To strengthen its partnership with the community, the department’s Citizen Police Academy provides participants the ability (through practical application) to gain perspective on the many challenges faced by law enforcement officers.
The seven-week program is designed to provide residents insight on the inner working of the Shakopee Police Department. Participants will be exposed to several facets of the police department and participate in several of the same training programs through which Shakopee police officers experience.
