Citizen Police Academy

In order to foster a better understanding of police operations and how we serve our community, each spring the Duluth Police Department offers its citizens an opportunity to attend the Citizen Police Academy. 

Both in the classroom and in-field instruction regarding: 

  • K-9 Demonstrations
  • Patrol Operations 
  • Investigations Division 
  • De-escalation Tactics 
  • Use of Force Discussion
  • And more!

Classes run every Wednesday from March until May from 6 - 9 p.m.
