Orleans Parish District Attorney Leon Cannizzaro invites the public to register for the fourth annual Citizens Academy, a series of eight classes starting in September which explain how the criminal justice system works.
The first of the weekly sessions will be taught by DA Cannizzaro and is scheduled for Tuesday, September 9, 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Classes will be held at the DA's offices, 619 South White St. in downtown New Orleans.
The series of eight classes includes in-depth presentations by the senior staff of the DA's office, as well as a final session with New Orleans Police Department Chief Ronal Serpas. Light refreshments are provided by Crimestoppers.
Registration is now open. A commitment to attend a majority of the classes and a background check are required for admission prior to the first class, said organizer Anne Kiefer. Please contact Ms. Kiefer, 504-571-2937 or firstname.lastname@example.org, for more information.
