Citizen’s Academy for the 18th Judicial District
This free, seven-week virtual academy will be held Tuesday and Thursday evenings, April 13 – May 27, 2021.
Each class will explore the role of various members of the District Attorney’s Office in different parts of the criminal justice system. The academy will give participants an in-depth look at what happens on a case between the time of arrest and sentencing. Participants will join a Zoom meeting each night from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m.
Interested participants may sign up for the Zoom academy in advance at this link : https://zoom.us/meeting/register/tJUpc-upqDkiGtT2atQfZmxFmiO9I8d5Vq42.
It is recommended participants log in from a tablet, laptop or desktop so questions can be asked using the chat function.
Participants are asked to log in 15 minutes early. If you have never used Zoom, simply click on the link you get at registration, and the application will ask to install the first time you attempt to join the meeting. It is free to download.
The host will mute all participants; you can choose whether or not you want to have your webcam on.
Presentations will start right at 6 p.m., a different one each day. During the presentation, participants can type questions using the chat feature. A moderator will screen the questions and answer as many as time permits.
Completion certificates will be available to those who participate in every session; contact Aurora Ogg in advance at firstname.lastname@example.org.
