“The Saline County Sheriff’s Office and the Salina Police Department jointly offer a Citizen’s Academy. Sheriff Roger Soldan and Chief of Police Brad Nelson believe a community and government partnership is important to providing services and meeting the needs of a growing city and county population. When the community and law enforcement become cooperation partners, they form a powerful alliance, capable of addressing community issues and concerns. The Citizen’s Academy is part of a continuing program designed to 1) acquaint citizens with law enforcement’s practices and services and 2) acquaint officers with concerns and perceptions of the community.

The mission of the Citizen’s Academy is to build a better understanding between citizens and law enforcement through education and positive interaction.
