Sun Prairie Police Department Media Release
From: Lieutenant Brian Teasdale
Date: July 25, 2017
Subject: 2017 Sun Prairie Police Department Citizen Academy

The Sun Prairie Police Department is excited to offer to Sun Prairie residents, and to those that work in Sun Prairie, the opportunity to participate in the 2017 Citizen Academy. Participants must be 18 years of age and must pass a background check.

This community based policing program affords an opportunity for our citizens to learn more about what it is like to be a police officer, and it allows police officers a chance to better understand a citizen’s perspective on law enforcement.

Citizen Academy participants will spend time in a classroom learning more about police operations including investigations, crime prevention, criminal trends, and the policing philosophy in Sun Prairie. Participants will also take part in more hands on learning such as building searches, vehicle operations, traffic stop simulation, and firearms training.

Classes will be held on Thursdays starting September 7th and will culminate with a graduation banquet on Thursday, November 9th. Class time is from 6pm to 9pm. An additional class will be held on the morning of Saturday, October 7th. Participants do not have to commit to attending all classes.

Please contact Support Services Lieutenant Brian Teasdale at 608-825-1154 - if you have questions or are interested in applying.
