SNELLVILLE – The Snellville Police Department is offering a Citizens Police Academy class in order to strengthen the bond of friendship and cooperation between citizens and the police department.
The class runs 12 weeks beginning Aug. 30 and ending Nov. 15.
The class will help citizens gain a better understanding of the risks and responsibilities of officers. Some of the classes included in this training will be domestic violence, traffic stops, building searches, a tour of the jail and narcotics identification. The 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.
