Statesboro Citizens Police Academy accepting applications


People interested in learning about police work behind the scenes may wish to join the next Citizens Police Academy class.

The Statesboro Police Department is now accepting applications for the next course, which begins Sept. 2. Applications are available at the Statesboro Police Department located at 25 W. Grady St. The deadline to turn in a completed application is Aug. 22.

The Citizens Police Academy is a 12-week program, with one class a week on Tuesdays from 6 to 8 p.m.

The classes cover topics such as patrol, traffic enforcement, investigation, covert operations and Emergency Response Team. The presentations are slide show/lecture style and will be given by officers and detectives with the Statesboro Police Department.

There will also be opportunities for hands-on learning through equipment demonstrations, practical scenarios and ride-alongs with patrol officers.

The Citizens Police Academy is free to the public. Seats are limited and will be filled based on a first-come, first-served basis.

Applicants are encouraged to be able to commit to the full 12 weeks to get the most out of the program. Graduates of the Citizens Police Academy are eligible to join the Alumni Association for continued learning opportunities and involvement with the Statesboro Police Department.

Any questions about the Citizens Police Academy can be directed to Cpl. Justin Samples at justin.samples@statesboroga.gov.
