The Spokane Police Department will host a free Citizen Academy from Wednesday May 6th through June 3rd. The classes will be held every Wednesday from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
The Spokane Police Department Citizens Academy is designed to provide participating community members with an inside look at the SPD and a working knowledge of the various aspects of law enforcement.
The program is free to attend, but spots are limited.
During the Academy, students will be introduced to both hands-on and virtual police training. Additionally they will learn about operations and investigative procedures, special police units, and more. The Citizens Academy will culminate with a graduation ceremony where students will be awarded certificates of completion.
Classes will take place at the Spokane Police Academy at 2302 N. Waterwords St.
