Snohomish applicants sought for citizens academy
SNOHOMISH - The city is accepting applications for residents to take part in a September citizens academy.
The citizens academy will feature a series of classes aimed at making Snohomish residents safer, Police Chief John Flood said. Academy classes will include aspects of law enforcement, fire safety and city government.
“It’s modeled after citizen academies in other cities, but we want this one to be a little more involved with other aspects of the city,” Flood said.
Academy students will participate in “ridealongs” with several of the agencies involved in the academy and will educate students on how the city works, Flood said.
The academy will cost around $40 to $50, public safety commission chair Merle Kirkley said.
Applications will be available at the Police Department and City Hall by mid-to-late June, Kirkley said. But those interested can e-mail him at to sign up early, he said. 
“I think we’re going to have a lot of people who want to do it,” Kirkley said. “I’m excited about it. We’re making progress and I feel really good about it.”
Applicants must be 21, have no prior convictions and will be subject to a thorough background check, Kirkley said. 
Around 25 applicants will be accepted for the academy that will run September through December.
The citizens academy is a project of the city’s public safety commission, which was formed last year to promote public safety.
