Post Date:06/21/2017 10:15 AM

2017 Police and Fire

The Appleton Police and Fire Departments have joined together to offer their eighth annual, Citizen's Public Safety Academy.   The academy will begin on Tuesday, August 15, 2017 and runs through Tuesday, December 5, 2017.  There are a total of 13 class sessions. 

The class meets each Tuesday from 6:00 PM to 9:30 PM. Classes will be held at either the Appleton Police Station or Appleton Fire Station #6. 

The Citizen’s Public Safety Academy provides a glimpse of law enforcement and the life of a firefighter through tours, presentations and many interactive activities. The academy was created to provide a working knowledge of the policies, procedures and personnel of the Police and Fire Departments, for the citizens of our community.

The academy is free of charge.  It is open to all citizens who either live or work in the City of Appleton.  Applicants must be at least 17 years of age.  Citizens who have previously participated are asked to wait three (3) years before applying for another session of the academy.  Background checks will be completed, prior to applicants being accepted into the academy.

We are enrolling approximately 20 to 25 people on a first-come, first serve basis.  If we do not have room for all interested participants, you will be put on a waiting list for next year’s academy. 

Applications are due by Friday, July 14, 2017. They can be found on the Appleton Police Department website at http://www.appleton.org/residents/police/get-involved/citizen-s-public-safety-academy  Applications can be mailed in or sent directly to Sgt. Lund’s email.

If you have additional questions, please contact Sgt. Lund at (920) 832-5509 or by
