What a great time. I learned alot from and gained a new respect for all of the police officers in St. Louis County. I encourage everyone to sign up for the Citizens Acaemy to learn about, meet and support our amazing officers as well as others members of our community.

Paulette C. This was such an interesting class to learn more about the professionals that work to protect our community. Officer Schira and the other officers were really great to give up their time each week to present the classes or tours of the Police Academy. The sessions really opened our eyes and gives us a stronger appreciation for the talent and dedication that serves St. Louis County and supports surrounding areas. Attending next year's class would really be worth your time.
