For the past 20 years, several law enforcement agencies in the St. Cloud area have teamed up to offer an eight week course that aims to teach residents about police training and procedures.
The course, named the Metro Citizens Police Academy, is hosted by the Stearns County Sheriff’s Office and police departments from five surrounding cities: St. Cloud, St. Joseph, Sartell, Sauk Rapids, and Waite Park. It meets on Thursday nights for four hours throughout September and October. Residents of Stearns County can register here before August 28th to join the Academy.
