The 2017 Wayne County Prosecutor's Citizens Academy is a free seven week program that seeks to educate and inspire citizens by providing insight into the criminal justice system in Wayne County. The program will explore some of the emerging threats to individuals, families and the community at large and provide a look at what is being done to address them. The Academy will include discussions on crime investigation, specialized units designed to protect the most vulnerable members of our county, and the opportunity to weigh in with experts in the criminal justice system.

Topics include sexual assault, child abuse, illegal drugs, forensics, and homicide. The academy will be held set for 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. every Tuesday at Henry Ford College in Dearborn, MI. The course runs from September 12th through October 24th, 2017. The number of participants is capped at 120 and Wayne County residents are preferred. It is our goal that Citizen Academy graduates will help to create a safer and stronger communitybased response to crime.
