Residents looking for an opportunity to gain a better understanding of the inner workings of the Evansville Police Department will once again have that opportunity this Spring when the Department's 10-week Citizen's Academy convenes beginning March 3rd at the C.K. Newsome Center on Walnut Street in downtown Evansville.

The Department has hosted an Academy every Spring and Fall for over twenty years as a way for every day people like you and I to learn more about the various units within the Department and how they work to keep us safe day in and day out. A few of the units that will be represented in the Spring Academy include S.W.A.T., Bomb Squad, and Crime Scene. Past Academy's have also featured question and answer sessions with Chief Billy Bolin, Vanderburgh County Prosecutor Nick Hermann, and Mayor Lloyd Winnecke.

The three-hour sessions run from 6:00 - 9:00 p.m. every Tuesday and is free to attend. However, space is limited. Register now through the Evansville Police Department website, or download the registration form here and mail it to the following address:

15 NW ML King, Jr. BLVD., Room 129
