Spring 2013 Citizen Police Academy

The Warner Robins Police Department is now registering for the Spring 2013 Citizen Police Academy.  The Academy is an 11 week program that gives participants an opportunity to gain a better understanding of the responsibilities and challenges of the police profession. 

Participants will learn about several areas of law enforcement such as the hiring process, investigation divisions, SWAT team, use of force, and other areas.  The Academy will also allow citizens to experience some of the training associated with police work.  Ride-alongs with patrol officers will be highly recommended.  Applicants do not have to be a citizen of Warner Robins to participate. 

The Academy will be on Thursday evenings from 6:00 P.M. to 8:00 P.M. beginning March 7th and continue through May 16th.
