WRPD Now Enrolling for Spring 2019 Citizen Police Academy
The Warner Robins Police Department is now registering for the Spring 2019 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. Participants will experience some of the training associated with police work and ride with patrol officers on duty. Participants do not have to be a citizen of Warner Robins to be in Citizen Police Academy. Completion of the Citizen Police Academy is not equivalent to completing the Mandate Training Academy for sworn law enforcement officers. Participants of the Citizen Police Academy must be 18 years of age or older.
The Academy will be on Thursday evenings from 6:00 P.M. to 8:00 P.M. beginning February 28th and continue through May 16th. The Warner Robins Police Department Training Center located at 212 Stalnaker Avenue, Warner Robins will host the event. The classes are free for the participant.
