The Snellville Police Department is offering a Citizens Police Academy class in order to strengthen the bond of friendship and cooperation between the city’s officers and the people it serves.
The 35th session of the class runs nine weeks on from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursdays beginning Feb. 22 and ending April 18. The program is designed to help citizens gain a better understanding of the risks and responsibilities of police officers.
Some of the classes included in this training will be domestic violence, traffic stops, building searches, driving under the influence and firearms safety. This program also includes a ride along opportunity with a Snellville police officer.
The program is open to all Snellville-area residents 18 years and older. The academy is free and attendees do not have to live in city limits. Visit www.snellville.org/sites/default/files/uploads/police/scpa-application-revised.pdf for an application or pick one up at the Snellville Police Department. A background investigation will be conducted on all applicants prior to acceptance in the academy.
Applications must be returned no later than Feb. 16. Space is limited and the application must be filled out completely and notarized.
