Fortuna Police Citizens Academy participants received their certificates of completion at a small ceremony, following their last section of training last night.
The Academy consisted of eight weeks of training, meeting for two hours each week. The training allowed citizens the opportunity to get a glimpse into the world of law enforcement in Fortuna.
The training is intended to help the average citizen become better informed about the inner workings of our police department, and to help them dispel some of the misunderstandings and myths that may exist about law enforcement in general.
They also got the opportunity to learn about some of the training that our police officers undergo.
