Citizen Police Academy

The Huron Police Department is proud to offer a Citizen Police Academy.  The goal of the Citizen Police Academy is to bring the Huron Police Department closer to its residents.  We use “Understanding Through Education” as our foundation to provide students with information and knowledge about general law enforcement topics and the operation of the Huron Police Department.


During the nine week course, students receive instruction on firearms, criminal investigation, traffic enforcement, the judicial system, marine patrol and more.  The Citizen Police Academy is held annually beginning in September.


If you are interested in applying for a position in the Citizen Police Academy, you must complete an application for admission. All students must pass a background investigation prior to admission. To apply, please contact the police department
