With public safety top of mind locally and across the nation, Indianapolis residents have reached out to ask how they can be part of the solution to issues in our community.

The Indy Public Safety Foundation is excited to announce that applications are now being accepted for the 11th class of the Public Safety Citizens Academy (PSCA)! The PSCA is a free, 12-week course designed to provide a behind the scenes look at the work our city’s first responders do each day to keep Indianapolis safe. Participants will engage with and learn from our city’s first responders, including Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department (IMPD), Indianapolis Fire Department (IFD), and Indianapolis Emergency Medical Services (IEMS).

“While the Public Safety Citizens Academy was launched in 2013, it’s more important now than ever for citizens to learn more about public safety operations and how they can play a role,” said Dane Nutty, Executive Director of the Indy Public Safety Foundation. “We’re excited to offer more opportunities for those who live, play and work in our city to take part in this impactful experience.”

The PSCA will run every Thursday from August 29 through November 21, with classes being held at various public safety facilities throughout the city. Participation is free and open to any individual living in Central Indiana.
