Citizen's Academy

The next session will start in January/February 2019

Citizen Academy is a seven-session program, in which people learn about police work in Chaska by experiencing police work. Lectures and actual hands-on experiences are combined for a unique insight into the police department. The classes are held on Tuesday nights from 6 to 8 PM and are FREE!

The police department is providing an academy to increase partnerships with those in our community and create opportunities to receive feedback from participants to improve our delivery of services. Often there is little opportunity for both citizens and officers to share views and ideas.

If you are interested in participating in the academy please contact Officer Janke at 952-448-4200 or e-mail her to have an application sent to you.
