Citizen Police Academy

Class Training Announcement


In the law enforcement arena, an increasingly popular service to the community is that of a Citizen Police Academy. A Citizen Police Academy is a program intended to educate citizens about police work. Furthermore, it is an opportunity for the department to build a rapport with the citizens we serve. I am very happy to announce that the Menomonee Falls Police Department will be offering its eight Citizen Police Academy in the Fall of 2016.

The Menomonee Falls Police Department Citizen Police Academy is designed to give the public a working knowledge of our department’s organization, personnel, policies and procedures. The Citizen Police Academy is not designed as a preparatory class for individuals who desire to become a law enforcement officer. Rather, it is intended as an educational and informative offering for adults who either reside or work in our village that have a desire to learn more about their police department.

The Citizen Police Academy will cover a plethora of subjects to include police administration, traffic enforcement, police operations, criminal investigations, use of force, tactical operations, etc.  It will commence on Tuesday, September 13, 2016 and consist of thirteen weekly two to three hour classes with the graduation taking place on Thursday, December 8.  If you are interested in attending the Fall 2016 Menomonee Falls Police Citizen Police Academy, please click here to download an application.  Questions in reference to the academy can be directed to Sergeant Matthew Lewek, (262) 532-8740.
 

Upon receipt of all of the applications, we will review them and select up to twenty citizens for Class #8. It is our intent to have a very diverse class. Citizens accepted into the class will be required to return a signed waiver of liability and a registration fee of $30.00. The registration fees will be used to purchase an academy class shirt, to purchase a framed class photo which will be displayed in the police department, and to cover all other related miscellaneous costs associated with the Citizen Police Academy.

Sincerely,

Anna M Ruzinski
Chief of Police
