Martinez, California – Applications are being accepted for the 2024 Fall Community Academy at the Contra Costa County District Attorney’s Office.

The free, 10-week learning experience will be at the District Attorney’s Community Room in downtown Martinez from 6:00-8:30 pm every Wednesday starting on August 28th.

“Communication is a cornerstone of a strong community,” District Attorney Diana Becton noted. “I’m committed to keeping the public informed about our role in the criminal justice system and the Community Academy is a key initiative in this effort. Through this interactive engagement with our participants, we’ve been able to make great strides in building stronger relations between our office and the public we serve.”

The Community Academy offers participants a comprehensive look at the criminal justice system. You’ll hear from key players like deputy district attorneys, investigators, victim advocates, and more. They’ll explain how the District Attorney’s Office files cases, from investigation and prosecution to victim support. Additionally, you’ll get a firsthand look by touring the Martinez Detention Facility, meeting with a Superior Court judge, and learning about the office’s outreach programs for children, parents, and victims.

The Community Academy is open to residents 18 years old and older who live or work in Contra Costa County. For more information and to apply to be a participant, follow this link. The application deadline for the Fall 2024 Community Academy is July 12th.
