Would you like to get more involved in your community? Or perhaps you’d just like to learn more about the wonderful community in which you live? Here is an opportunity for you to potentially do both!
Police Chief Cynthia Renaud and Fire Chief Ron Phillips invite you to attend the annual City of Folsom Citizen’s Academy, which is both informative and fun.
The Citizen’s Academy is an educational program designed to create a greater understanding and trust between public safety agencies and the residents of Folsom. The Citizen's Academy is also a required training program for the CAPS (Citizens Assisting Public Safety) Volunteer Program. Folsom Police, Folsom Fire and guest agencies participate in the program to provide information on their services.
The Folsom Police Department covers topics such as Use of Force, CSI, Identity theft, 9-1-1 reporting, SWAT, Narcotics, Domestic Violence, Hostage Negotiations, and K-9 and Mounted Demonstrations. The Folsom Fire Department teaches Emergency Services. Topics such as Code Enforcement, Parks and Recreation, Animal Services and Water Management are taught by other City agencies.
The Citizen’s Academy is held annually, so take advantage of this opportunity! The academy is open only to Folsom area residents, 21 years and older. Classes begin March 9, 2016, and are held for 11 consecutive weeks on Wednesday evenings at 6:00PM. Applications are required and class size is limited.
Beginning January 21, 2016, applications will be available at the Folsom Police Department at 46 Natoma Street and Folsom Fire Station 35 at 535 Glenn Drive. You may download the application below, however, you must bring your completed application to the Police Department in person with a photo ID.
