The Appleton Police and Fire Departments have joined together to offer the 11th annual, Citizen's Public Safety Academy. The 2020 Citizen's Public Safety Academy will begin in August 2020 and ending in November 2020.

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 (previous law enforcement contacts are taken into consideration).

Applications are available by contacting Officer Meghan Cash by e-mail at, or by direct download using the link at the bottom of the page.
