The White Plains Department of Public Safety is pleased to announce the continuation of the Public Safety Citizen’s Academy.

The concept of the Citizen's Academy involves opening up the White Plains Public Safety Department to the residents of our city. The participants will see exactly what we do and how we do it.   As a result, graduates are better equipped to assess safety issues, share with others their knowledge of law enforcement practices and policies.   It is our hope is that the participants will gain a better understanding of the Public Safety professions

Given our commitment to the community and proactive problem-solving, we see the Citizen’s Academy as an effective way of bringing police officers, fire fighters, emergency medical personnel and our residents together in an informal, educational forum.

The benefits of such a partnership can only help strengthen the entire community in terms of public safety and quality of life. Classes will be held every Tuesday evening from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM.  Next schedule class begins October 10, 2017.
