This in-person course offers residents a detailed overview of our criminal justice system. Our prosecutors will provide an in-depth look at what happens with a criminal case between the time of arrest and post-conviction. Attendees will also have the option to participate in a mock trial following the classroom portion of the course.
The following specialized units will be featured in our upcoming academy class:
– Domestic Violence Unit -Economic Crime Unit (ECU)
-Cold Case Unit -Investigations Team
-Special Victim’s Unit (SVU) -Juvenile Prosecution
-Organized Crime Unit (OCU) -Victim’s Compensation
“I’m proud to deliver a Citizen’s Academy that gives participants the opportunity to witness how our justice system works,” District Attorney John Kellner said. “Instead of watching a verdict on television, attendees will get a behind-the-scenes look into how we investigate and prosecute cases.”

Light snacks and refreshments will be served during each session.
