Update 08-24-2016: Level 1 and Level 2 Citizens Academies are full.
The Spokane Police Department is excited to announce that a BRAND NEW Level II version of the Citizen’s Academy will start October 13th, 2016. Graduates of our previous Level I Citizen’s Academies helped shape the idea and the curriculum for this new level through their input and desire to learn more about SPD. You will have to have graduated the Level I Academy in order to sign up for Level II, so if you haven’t attended Level I yet, please sign up for the Level I class that starts September 1st.
The Spokane Police Department is now offering a NEW Level II Citizen’s Academy. It will start October 13th, 2016 and go every Thursday from 6-9:00pm until November 10th. The Level II Citizen’s Academy provides participating community members with an even more in-depth look inside SPD after completing the Level I Citizen’s Academy. During Level II, students are introduced to additional police training, facilities, mock police scenarios, and more. Like the Level I Citizen’s Academy, the Level II Citizen’s Academy will culminate with a graduation ceremony where students will be awarded certificates of completion. This academy was created after feedback from Level I graduates who wanted to learn even more about their Spokane Police Department.
In order to attend the Level II Academy, you will need to have completed the Level I Citizen Academy. We are offering a Level I Academy that starts September 1st, so get signed up soon! Both levels are free to attend, but spots are limited. For class descriptions and information on signing up, see the attached flier.
