SNELLVILLE – There are a few spots remaining for the spring session of the Snellville Citizens Police Academy.
The Snellville Police Department is offering this course in order to strengthen the bond of friendship and cooperation between citizens and police. The Academy also helps citizens gain a better understanding of the risks and responsibilities of officers.
The 12-week course begins March 2 and ends May 18.
Some of the classes included in the course are domestic violence, traffic stops, building searches, a tour of the jail and narcotics identification. This program also includes a ride along program with a Snellville police officer.
This program, founded in the spring of 2003, is open to all Snellville and Gwinnett residents 18 years and older. There is no charge for attending and participants do not have to live in the city limits to participate. A background investigation will be conducted on all applicants prior to acceptance in the Academy.
An application can be found here - http://www.snellville.org/Data/Sites/1/media/police/scpa-application---revised.pdf - and at the Snellville Police Department, 2315 Wisteria Drive.
