APD Citizen's Police Academy

February 8, 2005

Albany - The Albany Police Department wants you! APD is teaching citizens what it takes to serve and protect.

The Albany Police Department is once again holding a citizen's police academy. Students will get hands-on training with firearm simulators, forensic investigations, and they'll even get a chance to ride along with an officer.

At the end of the course, you won't be a certified police officer, but you'll have a greater understanding of crime fighting and peace keeping. "We want to make people more aware of what police officers go through and more aware about the whole criminal justice system," said Lt. Tracey Barnes, APD.

The 12-week citizen's police academy begins March 15th. The class meets every Tuesday from 6:30PM to 9:30PM. To sign up for the free course, contact Albany police at 229-431-2100.
