Registration for the 2023 Police Citizen's Academy has closed.
The Lakeville Police Citizen’s Academy is designed to give residents the opportunity to see what it’s like to be a police officer in the City of Lakeville. The Academy allows participants to interact with our officers and tour the facility. The firsthand look will provide a better understanding of police work, our policies and how our agency operates.
