[ARCHIVED] 2015 Citizen's Academy

Fridley Police

The Citizen's Academy is a program designed to educate community members of the inner workings of the Fridley Police Department. The program offers insights into how police offices perform their duties and how the department serves the community.

Mission of the Academy:
The purpose of the Citizen's Academy is to foster better communication between citizens and the police through education. The academy creates a nucleus of well-informed citizens who possess greater insight into police practices and services.

Graduates of the academy are encouraged to share their knowledge and experiences with the community as the opportunity arises. Everyone benefits from enhancing citizen understanding of the role and function of their police department.

Course Curriculum Includes:
•Constitutional Law
•Police History
•Use of Force
•Patrol Procedures
•Criminal Investigations
•Narcotics Investigations
•Traffic Enforcement (DWI)
•Community Policing
•Media/Public Releations
•9-1-1 Communications
•Domestic Violence
•K-9 Demonstration
•Personal Safety
•Fire Safety

A vital part of the academy is participation in a variety of "hands-on" learning experiences. Students will also have the option, on a voluntary basis, to "ride-a-long" with a patrol officer during their shift.

Who May Attend the Academy:

Anyone interested citizen who resides or works in the City of Fridley is encouraged to attend. Citizens involved with the community in some way, such as youth involvement, neighborhood watch, and neighborhood groups are very important to the academy.

Participants must be 18 years of age or older with no prior felony convictions.

Note: All applicants are subject to a criminal background check.
