  • Crime prevention
  • Law enforcement services
  • Evidence collection, community policing and parking.
  • Fire prevention
  • Fire suppression
  • Emergency management

The Academy is structured so attendees learn about public safety and city staff learn from residents. Classes also cover many duties that challenge public safety personnel. The program encompasses a total of 18 hours of presentations from various personnel in the local public safety sector.
