ALBANY, GA (WALB) – The Albany Police Department has worked hard recently to put more officers on the street, but they need your help to fight crime and make the city safer.

APD is now looking for volunteers to join their Citizen's Academy.

The program gives civilians an inside look at crime fighting.

People in the Citizen's Police Academy learn about everything from forensics to firearms and help police build better relations with the community.

One recent graduate told us she has a new respect for the men and women in blue.

"Until I went and saw for myself how it was different, they're doing a great job I'm behind them 100 percent," said Daffamie Johnson Citizen's Academy Graduate.

There are 20 spots available for the upcoming session. Applications are due February 9th and are available at APD front desk.

For more information on the session you can contact CPA Coordinator and Public Relations/Media Manager, Phyllis Banks at (229) 483-6298 during regular business hours. (8:00 a.m. -5:00 p.m.)
