Upcoming Citizens Police Academy
Are you curious about law enforcement protocols, procedures, tools, training and more? Would you like a first-hand look into the inner-workings of your police department? Consider becoming part of the 26th Citizens Police Academy.
Slated to begin in March 2014, the 10 week Academy will offer lectures, tours, and hands-on activities designed to help residents walk in the shoes of police personnel, be better informed, and have a better understanding about the person behind the badge. The course is free of charge and available to individuals who work or live in Fairfax County.
Participants complete approximately 40 hours of instruction on topics including:
- 9-1-1 Call Center
- Patrol issues and traffic stops
- Domestic violence
- Crime scene and cold case investigations
On Saturday, November 16, the 25th Citizens Police Academy graduation will be held; 35 residents will participate in the ceremony.
