15 Spaces Left in Citizen Police Academy Class

The Warner Robins Police Department still has 15 spaces left in the Fall 2015 Citizen Police Academy. The Academy is a 12 week program that gives participants an opportunity to gain a better understanding of the responsibilities and challenges police officers face. 

The class is free, and participants will learn about several areas of law enforcement such as the hiring process, investigation divisions, SWAT team, and use of force and firearms. 

Participants will also get to experience some of the training associated with police work, and even get the chance to ride along with a patrol officer.  You do not have to be a citizen of Warner Robins to be in the Citizen Police Academy. 

The Academy will be on Thursday evenings from 6PM-8PM beginning August 20 through November 5th. The Warner Robins Police Department Training Center located at 212 Stalnaker Avenue, Warner Robins will host the event.
