PLYMOUTH, MN – The City of Plymouth is now taking applications for the 2021 Public Safety Citizens Academy, a free 36-hour, 12-week course held from 6:30-9:30 p.m. Thursdays starting October 28.
Through lectures and hands-on demonstrations, a new component of police will be highlighted each week. The Fire Department will be closed for one week.
By exchanging information and promoting a greater understanding of public safety services, the academy aims to deepen the cooperation between public safety personnel and the community.
“This academy is a great way to learn about public safety in our community,” Public Safety Director Erik Fadden stated. “If you are interested, curious or have questions about how we operate – we open our doors to give a deeper look into the Police and Fire departments.”
Applicants must be at least 18 years old and must reside, worship, work, or own a business in Plymouth. A background check is required of all participants. An applicant will not be immediately disqualified if he or she has a prior felony conviction. The application deadline is Wednesday, October 20, or until the class is full.
Applications and advisory documents on data practices may be sent through email, fax, mail, or in-person to the following address:
Plymouth Public Safety Department
Attn: Community Relations Officer Jim Long
3400 Plymouth Blvd.
Plymouth, MN 55447
