Tune in to Fullerton’s Virtual Citizens Academy

For the past several weeks, the City of Fullerton has been hosting a weekly virtual “Citizens Academy” on its web site and Facebook page, to give residents a window into the City’s various departments.

This week, on July 9, the topic was the Police Department, featuring Police Chief Robert Dunn.

The sessions are typically hosted by the heads of various departments. Past sessions have included:

1.) Emergency Operations Team

2.) Administration

3.) Library

4.) Parks and Recreation

5.) Community and Economic Development

6.) Finance and HR

7.) Police (7/9)

All of these are archived on the City’s Facebook page.

Upcoming sessions include:

8.) Fire (7/16)

9.) Public Works (7/23)

According to the City, “The Citizen’s Academy is an opportunity to learn more about City operations and future plans. Attendees will hear from our City leaders, department directors, and staff and learn how individual departments operate, city finances, and how we allocate funds, and the decision-making process.”

The academy is open to anyone who wishes to watch. Tune in on Facebook Live, online at www.cityoffullerton.com/FTV3, Spectrum Channel 3 or AT&T U-verse Channel 99 every Thursday at 5:30PM through July 23.
