Citizen's Police Academy
Police organizations throughout the United States are presenting citizen police academy programs as a means of improving police-community relations. Beginning in 1992, the Peachtree City Police Department has been presenting such citizen police academies. The Citizen Police Academy is designed to provide Peachtree City residents, business owners and other city employees with basic information about the police profession and the daily operations of the Peachtree City Police Department.
The ultimate objective is to establish and maintain positive communications, and develop a partnership between the Community and Police Department through training and education. The Citizen Police Academy is a ten week course, free of charge and open to the first 30 accepted applicants who are residents, business owners, or employees with the City of Peachtree City. Applicants must be 18 years of age and older.
Class Orientation and Welcome Participants are introduced to the Academy Staff and fellow classmates. The Chief of Police and his command staff are introduced. State Certification and National Accreditation will be discussed. Light refreshments are available for participants and staff. A tour of the facility and a brief history of our department will be presented by the Chief.
The Citizen’s Police Academy will meet each Monday night from 6:30 p.m. until approximately 9:00 p.m. Most of the meetings will be held at the Police Department facility in Peachtree City.
