Marysville Citizen's Academy
The Marysville Police Department is proud to present the Citizen's Academy! In accordance with our mission to integrate our department with the community, we created the Marysville Police Citizen's Academy (MPDCA). It is our intent to provide citizens with a close look at the department, the officers, and the law enforcement services through interactive classroom activities, demonstrations, and discussion.
What are the Citizen Academy Objectives?
The MPDCA provides a class-room style environment with mobile activities. The topics and activities include touring the department, laws of arrest, search, and seizure, SWAT, K-9, firearms, forced option simulations, gangs, our community oriented policing program, and much more! You will be encouraged to attend a police ride-along during the academy to experience law enforcement closely.

Our instructors include members of your Marysville Police Department. We will provide experts in each field from the Chief of Police to the veteran officers who patrol your streets. This program allows for interfacing at a personal level. You are encouraged to ask questions and learn both what we do and why we do it. It is our hope that the academy experience will be a positive way for our department and community to learn from each other.
This program is not structured like a traditional police academy. There are no push-ups, shined boots, or drill instructors. The academy is tentatively scheduled over ten (10) weeks of instruction. The final class will be a graduation ceremony. We will accommodate any physical limitations. Classes begin at 1800 (6:00pm) and will consist of approximately two and a half hours of interaction. Most classes will be held at the new state-of-the-art Cal-Trans facility in Marysville.
