Citizens Police Academy

Citizens Police Academy 2015


The Redmond Police Department just wrapped up the Spring Citizen's Academy with 25 students attending 9 evenings of classes. The highlights for the graduates included; mock traffic scenes, a field trip to the medical examiner's office, processing a fake crime scene and hearing from the many talented and professional Redmond Officers. We plan to run our academy every spring and will likely extend it to 12 sessions in 2016.
