BAINBRIDGE, GA (WALB) -  Bainbridge Public Safety Officers are showing people what goes on behind the scenes while they're on duty. 

This is the first year than the department has hosted a Citizens' Public Safety Academy.

The 10-week program will give citizens a better understanding of the challenges each officer faces on a day to day basis. 

Major Robert Humphrey said, “That's the question that we get from the public. 'Well, they do it on TV, why can't you guys do it?' And it's just not that easy. So, giving these classes gives them the inside perspective like, 'Oh this is really how it happened.  This is reality.'”

The group meets every Tuesday at 6 p.m.  

Citizens will complete the program March 17th.
