The Appleton Police and Fire Departments have joined together to offer their fifth annual, Citizen’s Public Safety Academy. The academy will begin on Wednesday, September 3, 2014 and runs through Wednesday, November 19, 2014.
The class meets each Wednesday from 6:00 PM to 9:30 PM. Classes will be held at either the Appleton Police Station or Appleton Fire Station #6.
The Citizen’s Public Safety Academy provides a glimpse of law enforcement and the life of a firefighter through tours, presentations and many interactive activities. The academy was created to provide a working knowledge of the policies, procedures and personnel of the Police and Fire Departments, for the citizens of our community.
The academy is free of charge. It is open to all citizens who either live or work in the City of Appleton. Applicants must be at least 17 years of age. Citizens who have previously participated are asked to wait three (3) years before applying for another session of the academy. Background checks will be completed, prior to applicants being accepted into the academy.
We are enrolling approximately 15 to 20 people on a first-come, first serve basis. If we do not have room for all interested participants, you will be put on a waiting list for next year’s academy.
Applications are due by Friday, July 11, 2014. The applications are available by contacting Sgt. David Lund at 832-5509 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org They can also be found on the Appleton Police Department website at http://www.appleton.org/i/pu/2013_citizen’s_public_safety_academy_application.pdf
