The Wyoming Public Safety Department is excited to announce the 2021 Wyoming Public Safety Academy. The Wyoming Public Safety Citizen Academy has been established to continue positive relationships between the citizens of Wyoming and their Public Safety Department.  The goal is to develop and increase mutual awareness and understanding of the Public Safety role in our community.  We feel that we have things to learn from community members and hope that you may walk away with a greater understanding of us. This is just one of many outreach efforts to support the City of Wyoming’s Mission Statement of Community, Safety, and Stewardship.
