2018 Citizen Academy

Sun Prairie Police Department Media Release

From: Lieutenant Kevin Konopacki

Date: July 17, 2018

Subject: 2018 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 2018 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 6th and will culminate with a graduation banquet on Thursday, November 1th. Class time is from 6pm to 9pm. There will be one additional class on a Saturday morning with that date still to be determined. Participants do not have to commit to attending all classes.

Please contact Support Services Lieutenant Kevin Konopacki at 608-825-1176 - if you have questions or are interested in applying.
