Police Department to offer Advanced Citizens Police Academy
Due to the success of the Shakopee Police Department Citizens Police Academy, we’re introducing an Advanced Citizens Police Academy.
The three-week course meets from 6 to 9 p.m. Wednesdays, Oct. 16-30. The advanced academy will give participants a deeper look into the work our law enforcement officers perform as first responders. During the sessions, participants will learn how to help in a bleeding emergency before professional help arrives, practice shooting targets with Simunition guns and tour the Scott County jail.
The advanced academy is limited to 15 participants and only open to graduates of our annual Citizens Police Academy program. An additional background check of all applicants will be completed to ensure the safety and confidentiality of law-enforcement specific material. All applicants must be over 18.
If you’d like to apply, visit our website at www.ShakopeeMN.gov/citizensacademy. Application deadline is Oct. 4.
