Update: Due to a very high volume of applications, we regret to announce that the 2021 Citizen Academy is now closed to new applicants. We will be reaching out to all applicants soon. Thank you for your interest! If you were unable to apply this year, please be on the lookout for our 2022 Academy next spring.
The Sheboygan Police Department will be hosting its 25th Annual Citizen Academy starting on April 13, 2021 and concluding on June 8, 2021. The 9 week course will be held on Tuesday evenings at the Sheboygan Police Department, 1315 N 23rd St, from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM. There is no cost to attend and participants will be provided credentials and class materials. It is important for the participant to be able to attend each week, as each course week is built upon the preceding week.
The Citizen Academy is designed to be interactive through lectures, demonstrations and practical exercises. The purpose of the academy is to provide stakeholders of the City of Sheboygan an understanding of the police department and its functions and to enhance relationships between the community and police department. Participants will be exposed to many areas of police work including the hiring process, current department initiatives, police investigations, use of force, and the legal system.
Applicants must be at least 18 years of age and have no felony arrests or convictions. Background checks will be conducted on all applicants. Letters of acceptance or regrets will be mailed to applicants.
Spots are limited due to COVID-19, so please do not wait to apply below if you are interested.
