Police Department

Citizen Police Academy

Have you ever wondered why officers react the way they do? The Duluth Citizen Police Academy gives citizens a better understanding of police operations and how we serve our community.

Attendees will learn about:

  • Use of force
  • Narcotics enforcement
  • Patrol operations
  • Criminal & death investigations
  • K-9 operations
  • And more!

Your experience is further enhanced by a ride along with an officer and firearms use of the department’s specialized weapons.

Classes run 12 weeks every year from March – May.
