The Minneapolis Police Department seeks to serve people from a wide variety of backgrounds when selecting participants in its Citizen’s Academy classes. It attempts to attract candidates of different ethnicities, professions, cultural backgrounds, age groups, and neighborhoods throughout the city in the hopes of enriching class discussions and reaching out to as many communities as possible.

Seating is limited--we give priority to those applicants who commit to becoming block leaders. If seating capacity is exceeded, we will put non-block leaders on a waiting list.

Applicants are requested to complete an application and will be requested to have a background check completed through the Minneapolis Police Department.
