Public Safety Academy

Beginning with the first Citizens Police Academy in 1995, Auburn Police developed the annual program to include all of Public Safety Services (Police, Fire and Emergency Management & Communications.) Auburn's Public Safety Academy launched in 2008.

Available to civilians in the community who are 19 years or older, the program is conducted in nine classes over seven weeks to cultivate a stronger relationship between Public Safety Services and Auburn's residents and visitors.

Each week, a variety of presenters will discuss topics ranging from the enforcement of building codes to crime scenes to fire prevention with the final session providing an opportunity to discuss future goals, a presentation from the Public Safety Academy Alumni Association and the Public Safety Academy graduation ceremony. The result is a group of individuals with a better understanding, appreciation and relationship with Auburn Public Safety services and members in their community.
