Duluth Police Department's Citizens' Police Academy (CPA) is an
informative learning process that provides an opportunity for
citizens to receive 11 weeks of both classroom and field instruction
regarding the various responsibilities facing our officers. CPA
attendees are also made aware of the procedures and techniques
used by officers in a variety of scenarios, together with the
rationale and justification in support of those procedures or
techniques. The academy has been offered in the spring and fall
to those who live and work in Duluth since 1997. Classes are held
every Wednesday evening from 6:00
pm until 9:00 pm for 11 weeks.
attendees receive information and instruction on such issues as
use of force, narcotics enforcement, patrol operations, criminal
investigations, death investigation, demonstrations by the K-9
Unit, and much more. All of this is enhanced by their opportunity
to ride along with an officer and engage in actual firearms use
with some of the department's specialized weapons.
these academy classes we hope to foster a better understanding
of police operations and how we serve our community.
