 The St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department is currently accepting applications for its next Citizens Academy class.  The Citizens Academy offers an insider's view into the day-to-day job of a St. Louis City Police Officer and is designed to further strengthen the bond between the Department and the community.  Participants receive classroom instruction, visit with the K-9 unit, interact with the bomb and arson robot, tour the 911 center and learn first-hand on the driving and shooting simulators about the split-second decisions officers must make.  The Citizens Academy meets one night per week for 12 weeks.

Applicants must be St. Louis City residents or own a business in the city limits.  Participants must be 18 or older and have no outstanding arrest warrants.  All participants must agree to a criminal background check.  There is no fee associated with attending the Citizens Academy.

Questions about applying to the Citizens Academy should be directed to .
