Fayetteville offers Citizens Police Academy

In an effort to increase the community involvement with the Fayetteville Police Department and offer insight into the services it provides, the department will be hosting the fourth annual Citizens Police Academy at the Fayetteville Police Department. The purpose of the academy is to foster better communication between citizens and police through education.

The Citizens Police Academy will consist of two-hour classes held each week on Thursday nights from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., for 12 weeks. This instruction is comprehensive, covering a different area of the Police Department each week.

The academy is intended to create a nucleus of well-informed citizens who possess greater insight into police practices and services. Graduates of the Academy can share their knowledge and experiences with the community as the opportunity arises. Everyone benefits from enhancing citizen understanding of the role and function of their police department.

Certified police officers, supervisors, and civilian instructors with particular expertise will conduct classes on each topic. Additional activities such as “ride-alongs” with officers and firearms training will be included in the academy.

The first class will be held April 1, 2010 and will run each week until graduation on June 17, 2010. All classes are free.

Anyone interested in attending the academy can pick up an application at the Fayetteville Police Department located at 760 Jimmie Mayfield Blvd., during normal business hours. The class is limited to the first 20 qualified applicants.

The deadline for turning in applications is March 22, 2010 at 5 p.m.

For more information, contact Captain Steve Crawshaw, public information officer, Fayetteville Police Department. The office number is 770-461-4441. Email is scrawshaw@fayetteville-ga.gov.
