Fall 2020 Citizen’s Academy

The virtual version of Citizens Academy can accommodate more participants than the in-person event.

District Attorney George Brauchler is pleased to announce the dates for the 2020 Fall Citizens Academy.

This free, three-week virtual academy will be held Monday through Thursday evenings, Sept. 21 – Oct. 8, 2020.

Each class will explore the role of various members of the office in different parts of the criminal justice system. The academy will give students an in-depth look at what happens on a case between the time of arrest and sentencing.

Participants will join a Zoom meeting each night from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m.
