Citizen's Academy

The Red Wing Police Department’s Citizen's Academy is a community awareness program that offers residents a firsthand look at the philosophies of law enforcement and internal operations of your police department. The program provides information about:

  • Adult Detention Center
  • Crime prevention
  • Evidence collection, community policing and parking
  • Investigations
  • Law enforcement services
  • Traffic enforcement
  • Use of Force tools/equipment

The Academy is structured so attendees learn about law enforcement, and Police Department staff learn from residents. Classes also cover many duties that challenge law enforcement personnel. The program encompasses a total of 18 hours of presentations and hands-on exercises from various Department personnel.
