The Lynnwood Police Department finished its 24th Citizens Academy with more than 42 graduates. The annual 13-week free course familiarizes citizens with common police procedures, activities and investigative techniques. Those who attended learned a great deal about all phases of law enforcement.
A total of 21 of the participants have continued on through the interview process to become volunteers of the LPD Citizens Patrol, VIPS (Volunteers in Public Safety) and the Explorers Post.
