The academy starts Thursday March 13 and will meet from 6:00-9:30 p.m. for twelve consecutive weeks (the thirteenth week is graduation). Applications will be accepted until March 10.   

The Citizen Academy is a 12-week non-stress course designed to provide community members with a better understanding of the Laguna Beach Police Department and to help foster better communications between police personnel and citizens.

The Academy will include instruction in the following areas: History of the Laguna Beach Police Department, investigations, traffic enforcement, accident investigation, driving under the influence investigation, gangs, narcotics, neighborhood watch, crime prevention, crime scene investigation, police K-9 program and volunteer programs.

There will also be a tour of the police facility as well as vehicles and equipment used by the department. Academy members will be given the chance to shoot at the police firing range and participate in mock scenarios. There is also a tour of the Orange County Jail. 

To obtain an application and announcement for the Citizen Academy, contact PSO Ross Fallah at rfallah@lagunabeachcity.net. For questions regarding this program, contact Cpl. Matt Meadow at (949) 497-758 or email: mmeadows@lagunabeachcity.net.
