Citizens Police Academy

The Marshfield Police Department has revamped its citizen’s police academy program.  We will be holding classes on Tuesday evenings from 6:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. for six (6) consecutive weeks normally starting in April.  Class size is limited to 17 adults.  

  • The goals of the citizens’ police academy are:  
  • To provide citizens a working knowledge of law enforcement operations, including support staff.  
  • To strengthen law enforcement/community relations.  
  • To obtain valued feedback from the community through citizen participation.  
  • To increase citizen knowledge about police functions and enhance employee’s instructor training. 
The above objectives are met with the use of hands-on interactive experiences in areas such as crime scene investigations; SWAT tactics; utilization of police department firearms at the police range; and observe firsthand how the K-9 unit performs its duties.
