Anthony Gore of the Statesboro Police Department, left, after stepping into the shoes of a police officer as the Concerned Clergy Citizens Police Academy wraps up with a dinner at R.J.'s Grill.
More than a dozen members of the local clergy marked their graduation this week from Statesboro’s inaugural class of the Concerned Clergy Citizens Police Academy. Their graduation was celebrated with a dinner, round-table discussion and certificate presentation. The five-week, 20-hour course is a condensed version of the Citizens Police Academy, held annually for interested community members since 2012, and was geared specifically for religious leaders in the community.
