The Citizen’s Academy is not your typical civics class; it’s a five-week masterclass in law enforcement swagger, happening this spring at the El Cajon Police Department. It’s a deep dive into the pulse-pounding world of policing, wrapped up in a once-a-week evening session that culminates in an all-encompassing Saturday seminar.
