42,000 & Counting!

We believe in training our employees to the highest possible educational and professional standards.

One officer coordinates the training hours for each employee and gives in service classes several times a year.

The Georgia Peace Officer Standards and Training Council (GA POST) requires each officer to receive at least 20 hours of training per year to retain certification.  

Last year Warner Robins Police Department employees received a total of 14,416 training hours.

The division is also responsible for Citizens Range Day that occurs every third Saturday of the month. 1,045 people participated last year.

Documenting ammunition and firearms are also a big part of the division.  42,306 rounds of ammunition was used by our agency in 2012.
