Description:

San Diego County District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis is pleased to announce that in partnership with San Diego County Sheriff Bill Gore, is offering a free Citizens’ Academy to members of the community with an interest in the criminal justice system and law enforcement. From the prosecution of serial murderers to the most complex financial crimes, the Citizens’ Academy offers a behind-the-scenes look that demystifies the workings of the criminal justice system in San Diego. The academy will provide information and resources that will be invaluable to you and your Chamber of Commerce. We cordially invite you to participate. Among the topics covered in this fast-paced, 10-week program: computer crime, human trafficking, elder abuse, use of force by law enforcement, gang violence in our communities and the current state of narcotics prosecutions. Participants will have the unique opportunity to hear directly from leaders in both the District Attorney’s Office and the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department. Highlights include a fascinating tour of the San Diego County Medical Examiner’s Office, and the ability to see up close how law enforcement officers are trained to react on the spot to a deadly threat of force.

The academy will meet on Thursday evenings beginning September 11, 2014 and ending November 13, 2014 (please take a look at the attached flyer for exact dates). The academy lasts three hours each week, from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m., and will be held at the University of San Diego, Joan B. Kroc Institute for Peace and Justice, located at 5998 Alcala Park, San Diego, CA 92110. Parking is free.If you are interested in participating, we urge you to apply now because space is limited and past Academies have filled quickly. The deadline to apply is Monday, August 11, 2014.
