The Manitowoc Police Department Citizens’ Academy is a ten-week program covering various aspects of law enforcement. Academy classes will be held on Tuesday evenings from 6:00 - 9:00 p.m., February 27th through April 23rd, 2024, with Graduation being held on April 30th. Interested citizens must be committed to attending ALL sessions.
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 law enforcement officers. Class discussion will be encouraged. Classroom lectures will be kept to a minimum, 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.
