ALBANY, GA (WALB) – Community involvement is a key asset in cutting down on crime. That is why APD is once again offering its citizen's police academy.
17 people began a 12-week-course Tuesday night in which they'll learn about a variety of topics from gang awareness to forensics. They'll also attend a firearms training course and go on a police ride along.
Participants say this course is a way of keeping themselves and their neighbors safe.
There are still openings for this course, but you must sign up by the end of the week.Contact APD at 483-6298 for information on the academy.
