Albany -- The Albany Police Department is looking for a few good citizens, to learn more about what the Police do. Albany Police will start their Citizen's Academy class in a week and a half.

 The Citizen's Academy is open to anyone, who wants to learn more about the Criminal Justice System and how their local Police Department works.

Tracey Barnes of the Albany Police Department said "The patrolling techniques, the 911 dispatch center, we teach them how to be a better witness, gangs, forensics and fingerprinting, and a ride along program at the end."

The Albany Police Citizen Academy will begin September 16th. It will be held every Tuesday night for 8 weeks. You can sign up at the Albany Police Department, or call 431-3220.
