From page A2 | March 19, 2013 |

Thursday is the deadline to apply for the second annual Citizens Academy, sponsored by the Yolo County District Attorney’s Office in cooperation with the Yolo County Sheriff’s and Probation departments and police departments in Davis, Woodland, Winters and West Sacramento. The class is limited to 20 participants.

The Citizens Academy is a 10-week course designed to involve diverse communities in participating in mutual learning about the criminal justice system. The goal is to educate the public and improve relationships and communication among the many different communities in Yolo County and the criminal justice system.

Scheduled topics will include the role of the district attorney; the role of law enforcement, including internal affairs and review boards; special challenges of prosecution, including three strikes and domestic violence; race as a factor in the criminal justice system; juvenile law; and gangs.

“The academy provides a comprehensive look at the criminal justice system in Yolo County,” District Attorney Jeff Reisig said in a news release. “Together, we will explore how the system interplays with our communities, from West Sacramento to the rural areas. I think participants will be educated, enlightened and entertained.”

The academy will meet from 6 to 8:30 p.m. every Thursday for 10 weeks, starting April 11, at the Yolo County Sheriff’s Department. To enroll, contact Wendy Wilcox at 530-666-8356 or [email protected] or visit www.yoloda.org for more information.
