The Citizen’s Academy is a program designed to provide participants with a working knowledge of the Ellensburg Police Department. It consists of classes and discussions where citizens learn about the duties and responsibilities of our department and the citizen’s role in the interaction of police and citizens. In addition to helping citizens better understand the police department, it, in turn, helps the police department better understand the citizens and their concerns.
The dates of the academy are October 12, 19, 26 and November 2, 6, 9. The program is open to residents of the Ellensburg community that have an interest to learn more about their police department, crime concerns within Ellensburg and the role a police officer has regarding the enforcement of laws.
