Now Enrolling for Spring Citizen Police Academy

The Warner Robins Police Department is now registering for the Spring 2017 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 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 firearms. Gain the opportunity to experience some of the training associated with police work and ride with patrol officers on duty. 

You do not have to be a citizen of Warner Robins to be in Citizen Police Academy. You must be 18 years of age or older to enroll in the Citizen Police Academy. Completion of the Citizen Police Academy is NOT equivalent to completing the Mandate Training Academy for sworn law enforcement officers. 

The academy will be on Thursday evenings from 6-8PM beginning February 9th and continue through April 27th. The Warner Robins Police Department Training Center located at 212 Stalnaker Avenue, Warner Robins will host the classes.

The classes are free for the participant.
