Preparing For The Citizens Academy in Slinger

Slinger Police Department is once again hosting its Citizen Academy Program this fall, and applications are now being accepted. The Academy will start on September 5 and end on October 10.

This program is designed for adults of all ages. 

Applicants do not need to reside in the Village of Slinger limits.

Slinger police Chief Dean Schmidt told WTKM News all about it. 

"We will give them a first-hand look at what the officers do on a daily basis and some perspective of the types of areas that our department cover."

The Slinger Police Citizen Academy meets once a week, on Thursday nights, for six weeks to discuss various law enforcement topics and allow participants a hands-on experience.

Those who complete the Citizen Academy may also join an officer on an optional ride along.

Applications for the Citizen Academy may be picked up at Slinger Police Department, or found on the Village of Slinger website.
