Prairie du Chien Police Citizens Academy

We are kicking off our search for our 2018 class of cadets to attend our Citizen’s Academy! If you are interested in learning more about your Prairie du Chien Police Department, please get an application at the Crawford County Communications Center or City Hall. The 2018 Academy will begin March 7th and conclude on May 9th. The class meets once a week (Wednesday evenings) from 6:00pm to 9:00pm. Class size is limited so get your applications in early. We encourage you to speak with cadets that have previously attended, we are fairly confident they would highly recommend you take advantage of this  opportunity.  “As a Prairie du Chien native my entire life and current Mayor I would recommend this class to all who would like to develop a bridge building trust with the department”, Dave Hemmer said “Further it gives you a closer look on what your police officers may face on a daily basis.”  Applications are due by February, 23 and can be dropped off at City Hall or the Police Department. Citizens Academy Application
