Citizen Police Academy
The Fargo Police Citizen Academy exposes citizens to many of the challenges that face our officers. The goal of the class is to provide education and awareness about what the Fargo Police Department is, what we do, and how we accomplish our mission. Classes are comprised of lecture and realistic hands-on training when possible.
Citizen Police Academy participants are not actually trained for police work. However, participants will have a better understanding of the Fargo Police Department operations and the day to day responsibilities and duties that officers are tasked with on a regular basis.
Requirements: The basic requirements are to be a citizen of Fargo, or currently work within Fargo, and to be 18 years of age or older.
Cost: There is no fee for joining the Fargo Police Citizen Academy.
The class size is limited, and applications will be processed in the order they are received. The deadline to submit an application is Friday, September 20.
