The Lynnwood Police Department will be offering a 14-week Citizens Academy class starting in January 2019.

Conducted by the police department, it’s designed to give citizens a better understanding of the mission, values, and operations of the police department.

During theinteractive course, participants will be introduced to the basic information that all police officers must know to perform their jobs, including patrol tactics, criminal and narcotics investigations, use of force, communications, DUI procedures, and domestic violence to name just a few.

The course is from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. every Thursday starting on Jan. 10, 2019 at the Lynnwood Senior Center, 19000 44th Ave. W.

This class is free. Light refreshments are served. Space is limited, so early enrollment is strongly encouraged. A limited amount of seating will be awarded to high school senior applicants.

An application form is located online
