You'll learn about investigations, gang awareness,  forensics, and get the chance to build a better relationship with officers.

"Phyllis A lot of citizens who come through the citizens police academy do kind of create that bond so to speak with the officers because they get a chance to ask them those fiery questions that they always wanted to know about the police department and their procedures," said Albany Police Media Manager Phyllis Banks. 

Students will also get to experience use of force firearms simulator and ride along with an officer on patrol.
