Palm Beach County Criminal Justice Commission will host its 23rd annual Citizen’s Justice Academy.  The 10 week program begins on Thursday, January 12, 2012 and runs 10 consecutive Thursdays until March 15, 2012. The evening program begins at 6:00 pm and ends at 9:00 pm. This exciting program is open to citizens residing in Palm Beach County who wish to learn more about the criminal justice system. The program is free.

Citizen’s can expect to learn about local law enforcement, including the Sheriff’s Special Operations.  Citizens will tour the Main Detention Center, the Courthouse, and Medical Examiner’s Office.  Most of the program is class room style lectures with interactive presenters and lots of opportunity for questions and answers. Lectures will be provided by local, state, and federal law enforcement.

The first month of classes will be held at the West Palm Beach Police Department, 600 Banyan Street, West Palm Beach, FL 33401 in the 1st fl Community Room. Classes will move around the county but remain in the greater West Palm Beach area. 

Class is limited to the first fifty (50) enrollees due to space considerations. If you’ve always been curious about the criminal justice system, here is your chance to speak and learn from the experts.  This program is sponsored by the Palm Beach County Board of County Commissioners as a service to the residents of this great county.
