Flagstaff, Arizona — On September 6, 2017, Northern Arizona law enforcement will conduct a Citizen’s Academy demonstrating a multi-agency approach that depicts how northern Arizona law enforcement agencies work together. Material covered in the academy includes death investigations, criminal investigations, search and rescue and drug interdiction. The academy is an hour a week for 11 weeks with graduation slated for November 15th. Among the planned events is a field trip to the DPS Crime Lab in Flagstaff along with a presentation from the Coconino County Medical Examiner’s Office. Participants will also experience a shooting simulator.
The Arizona Department of Public Safety (AZDPS) is proud to join Flagstaff Police, the Coconino County Sheriff’s Department and the Northern Arizona University Police Department in presenting the Flagstaff Citizens Police & Sheriff’s Academy.
“This is a chance for the public to learn firsthand the dynamics of a criminal investigation. Crime investigation in the real world is far more intricate and involved than how it’s depicted in the media. In this academy you’ll be able to separate fact from fiction,” said Sergeant Brad Elliott of the Arizona Department of Public Safety.
For more information email [email protected] or call 928-773-3673. The deadline to register is September 4.
The Arizona Department of Public Safety is a state-level law enforcement agency whose mission is to protect human life and property by enforcing state laws, deterring criminal activity and providing vital support to the State of Arizona and its citizens.
