Learn How Local Law Enforcement Works in the 2020 Citizens Police Academy
The North Liberty Police Department, in cooperation with the Johnson County Sheriff and the police departments of the University of Iowa, Coralville and Iowa City, offer the Citizens Police Academy, which works to promote understanding of what law enforcement does, builds better community relationships, and provides an overview for people who may be interested in police work as a career. Training includes department tours and ride-alongs, defensive tactics, evidence collection, drug investigation, and many other areas of enforcement and operations.
