The purpose of the Citizen's Public Safety Academy is to foster a strong and lasting relationship between the City of Pella public safety departments and the community by allowing citizens to experience the training and occupational rigors shared by public safety professionals. This academy will involve the Pella Police Department, Pella Fire Department, and the Pella Community Ambulance.
Anyone interested in the academy is encouraged to email Captain Paul Haase or email Sergeant Shawn Veenstra. Completed Citizen's Public Safety Academy Applications (PDF) should be dropped off at the Police Station. The department generally runs two Citizen's Public Safety Academy classes per year: one in late spring and the other in late summer/early fall.
