MPD Announces 2024 Citizens Police Academy

MPD Team Members

The staff at the Marshalltown Police Department is seeking community members to participate in the up-coming 2024 Citizen Police Academy.  The curriculum and teaching methods are similar to the traditional police academy, but its students are not potential police officers.  

The purpose of the Citizen Police Academy is to build a better understanding between citizens and the police, through education.  Participants will become familiar with the operation of the Marshalltown Police Department and gain a deeper understanding of the problems the police and the community are facing.  The classes will cover criminal law, police procedures and community relations.   Active class participation is encouraged during each session.


Participants will meet once a week during the ten-week course with the tenth week being a picnic and awards ceremony.  If you decide to accept this invitation, it is imperative that you commit to attend the majority of the academy classes.  The success of this program depends on the commitment of its students.

The Citizen Police Academy will begin on March 19, 2024 at the Marshalltown Police Department, 909 South 2nd Street.   Classes will be held on Tuesdays from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. the entire length of the Citizen Police Academy.
