Citizen Academy

Due to the CDC social distancing guidelines to slow the spread of COVID-19, we are postponing Citizen’s Academy until 2021.

Citizen Academy is a seven-session program that teaches people about police work in Chaska. Lectures and hands-on experiences are combined for a unique insight into the Chaska Police Department. 

The police department puts on this academy to engage with our community and create avenues for participant feedback on our services. Citizen’s Academy provides residents and officers a chance to share experiences and ideas.

Activities from previous Academies:

  • Tour the Police Station, Court house, 911 center, and County Jail
  • Traffic Stops
  • DWI and Drugs
  • School Resource Officers
  • Use of Force
  • Chaska Crime Scene Investigation (CSI), put on your detective hat!
