Blaine Citizens Academy is an eight-week course designed to introduce residents to the structure and daily operations of the Blaine Police,
Fire, and Community Standards departments that comprise the City of Blaine Safety Services Division.

while allowing participants an opportunity to perform tasks otherwise reserved for police officers and firefighters.
