In 2000 Chief David Duke implemented the Moscow Police Citizens Academy. The police department uses this Academy to educate and give one-on-one instruction to provide citizens and students with a personnel experience in the life and duties of police officers. The Academy encompasses the following:
Police and Department History
Criminal Justice System
Traffic and Drug Enforcement
SRO & Computer Investigations
Emergency Vehicle Operations
Use of Force
Firearms & Special Response Team
The Academy is an eleven-week course that meets once a week. Classes are limited to 30 students. U of I Students have the ability to acquire college credits if approved by their adviser.
This Academy is just one way the Moscow Police Department educates through transparency of our daily actions.
