Apply for the Salem Police Citizens Academy

The Salem Police Department is proud to serve our residents with the Citizens Police Academy each year. The 10-week interactive class gives a hands-on experience in a variety of activities including crime scene investigation, traffic stops, determining force and pursuit driving techniques.

The class also includes insight into the inner-workings of the Salem Police Department that most citizens may never see. Participants also learn what it takes to run the department on a daily basis.

During the session, each participant will have an opportunity to ride along with one of our officers to experiencewhat it’s like to have a career in the department.

The class is limited to only 12 participants and is free of charge.
