Citizens Academy is designed to reach out to members of our community, and invite them to learn more about the Manitowoc Police Department. Academy classes will be instructed by personnel of the Manitowoc Police Department, who will be open, honest, and candid about their duties and experiences as a law enforcement officer. Class discussion will be encouraged. Classroom lectures will be kept to a minimum, in order to maximize the “hands on” practical exercises.
Topics that will be covered during the Academy will include Police Department Operations, Use of Force, Firearms; Traffic Stops, O.W.I./D.R.E., Building Searches, Domestic Violence, Internet Sex Predators, Drug Awareness, Crowd Control, Human Trafficking, and Courtroom Testimony.
The goal of the Citizens Academy is to provide graduates with a working knowledge of the Manitowoc Police Department and to strengthen community support and involvement with the department.
If you are interested in participating in the 2023 Citizens Academy class please complete your application by Tuesday, January 10th, 2023.
