The Conyers Police Department (CPD) and DeKalb County Police Department are both preparing to offer their Citizens Police Academy in March and April respectively.
Conyers’ 12-week academy will be held on Tuesdays beginning March 12 at 6:30 p.m. Each session will last three hours, from 6:30 p.m.-9:30 p.m., and most sessions will take place in the Conyers Police Department training room at 1194 Scott Street.
“The Citizens Police Academy is one of our most popular community outreach programs,” said Chief of Police Gene Wilson. “This behind-the-scenes glimpse into law enforcement is a favorite with citizens because it is so hands-on and interactive.”
The DeKalb County Police Department is seeking applicants for its April Citizens Police Academy.
The academy is a free, 10-week course. Participants will meet one night a week for two-hour sessions. During the sessions, personnel from various units including Uniform, Criminal Investigations and Special Operations Divisions will teach participants about the complexities and operational structure of their respective units.
