The Victoria Citizens Academy draws on learning from successful citizen academies across the nation. These academies are often modeled after citizens police academies, which began in the mid-1980’s as a tool to foster stronger citizen commitment to police department and community, in an effort to reduce crime. Citizen police academies are now popular in communities large and small throughout the country.
