17th Judicial District Attorney’s Citizens Academy

The 17th Judicial District Attorney’s Office is proud to offer a Citizens Academy to the public each year. The 2018 academy will begin Thursday, Sept. 27 and will be held for eight weeks through Nov. 15, 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., at the 17th Judicial District Attorney’s Office at 1000 Judicial Center Drive in Brighton.

The free eight-week program will provide an understanding of the work done by prosecutors and law enforcement in our district.  You will come away with an understanding of county, district and juvenile courts, crime scene investigation, homicide cases, the coroner’s office, how officer-involved shootings are handled, and the difference between how a real district attorney’s office works compared with what is seen on television. The final session will feature a mock trial with academy members as jurors.

Applications are due Sept. 10. Apply today.
