Lynnwood Police 2018 Citizens Academy Graduates

LYNNWOOD, WA (April 16, 2018) - The Lynnwood Police Department just finished its 27th Citizens Academy with more than 42 graduates. The annual 14-week, free course familiarizes citizens with common police procedures, activities and investigative techniques. Although this course will not make police officers out of the public, those who attend learn a great deal about all phases of law enforcement.
