March 30th deadline: The Spring Citizen Police Academy will begin on Wednesday, April 15, 2015. The Citizen Police Academy is designed to enhance relationships with community members by familiarizing academy participants with the Santa Rosa Police Department, its policies, and practices.  The intent of the Citizen Police Academy is not to train citizens to become police officers, but to show participants firsthand the daily responsibilities and expectations of the occupation of police officers and other department employees. There are 25 spots available. Classes will be held every Wednesday evening from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. through June 10, 2015 (9 weeks). There will also be two Saturday classes that are currently being scheduled. Please fill out an application and submit it to the Santa Rosa Police Department at 965 Sonoma Avenue, Santa Rosa, CA 95404, or by email at srpdadmin@srcity.org no later than March 30th, 2015.

Plan Ahead:

Two Shows Only: Friday, April 24th at 7:00pm and Saturday, April 25th at 2:00pm Game of Tiaras  A hilarious parody of King Lear executed in the epic style of a PG-10* rated Game of Thrones thriller. King Lear’s iconic daughters appear as Disneyesque princesses determined to take the throne of the Magical Kingdom at any cost. With its wicked wit and recognizable characters, the Game of Tiaras is perfect for middle school students and adults who enjoy parodies of Shakespeare or Disney or who want to support a great cause.  The performance will last 1.5 hours and there will be a 15 minute intermission between the two acts. Purchase Tickets Online: $10 Adults, $6 Students at gameoftiaras.brownpapertickets.com  At the Door $12 Adults/ $8 Students. These shows will probably SELL OUT, so get your tickets early! Location: Kid Street Learning Center Charter School 709 Davis Street
