The Albemarle County Police Department Announces the Return of the Citizenís Police Academy

The Albemarle County Police Department is pleased to announce the return of the Citizen’s Police Academy. This is the first Citizen’s Academy the department has offered since 2008. The Academy provides citizens with the opportunity to learn about the Albemarle County Police Department and the role the department plays in our community. The incoming class
will complete the eight week course which starts on Tuesday and ends in May.

Each week the 14 students will get an in depth look at the different aspects of the department. They will develop a better understanding of how we respond to calls, investigate crimes, work
with victims and operate on a day-to-day basis. The class will conclude with information from the Firearms Team and the opportunity to take part in a scenario based exercise regarding
officer involved shootings.

Through communication and education, we believe this opportunity will help foster positive relationships with the community. Our goal is to provide a class that is both informative and rewarding for the citizens of Albemarle County.
