Jacksonville citizens' academy

Jacksonville citizens' academy

The Jacksonville Police Department will be conducting a Citizens Police Academy beginning on April 16, 2013. This will be an eight week academy designed to inform citizens on different aspects of law enforcement including Community Policing, Criminal Investigations, Patrol Duties, Use of Force, Firearms, Use of Force, K-9 Duties, SRT demonstration, Narcotics and Less Lethal weapons. This course will be held on Tuesday evenings starting at 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm. The course is free, and we encourage all who want to gain an active knowledge of their police department to attend. Attendance will be limited.

The goal of the Citizens Police Academy is that educated citizens will be more supportive of police officers and the department, and will be more productive within their own neighborhoods and communities. The Citizens Police Academy is not a “training” class but an exciting “information” class, a behind the scenes look at the Jacksonville Police Department.
