In keeping with the spirit of Community Oriented Policing, the men and women of the Albany Police Department want to invite you to attend the 18th Session of the Citizens' Police Academy.

The Albany Police Department's mission is to ensure the safety of our community by enforcing all laws and creating partnerships with citizens to improve the quality of life. We believe that you will find this experience very informative, insightful, and worthy of your time.

The first class will begin on Thursday, August 30, 2007 at 6:30 p.m. in the Law Enforcement Center Community Room (201 W. Oglethorpe Blvd).  All citizens interested in attending the classes must be at least 18-years-old and complete a short application so that we may keep an accurate account of those in attendance.

We are only able to accommodate seventy-five (75) participants at a time. Admittance to class will be on a first come first served basis. The duration of the academy is twelve weeks with a culmination ceremony.

The sessions will be held every Thursday from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. 

Topics of discussion are:

  • Police Administration and Operations
  • Use of Deadly Force and Firearms
  • Forensics
  • Fingerprinting
  • Evidence Collections
  • Communications
  • Police Patrol Techniques
  • Vehicle Pullover
  • Gang Awareness
