Criminal Justice Advocates Graduate

The Palm Beach County Criminal Justice Commission recently graduated its 36th class of Citizen’s Criminal Justice Academy participants. The graduates, shown above, came together for 13 consecutive weeks to learn about the criminal justice system. Speakers from local, state and federal law enforcement agencies served as subject matter experts during the program. The sessions concluded with high-impact demonstrations at the Palm Beach Gardens Police Department, where officers conducted a shoot-don’t shoot simulation, stun gun training and firearm simulation. The Citizen’s Criminal Justice Academy is held three times yearly, twice in West Palm Beach, and once in the Glades. The next academy begins on Monday, Jan. 28 in West Palm Beach. All are welcome, and there is no cost to attend. To learn more, visit
