Snellville extends invitation to citizen cops

January 21, 2017 by  

The Snellville Police will once again be holding its Citizen’s Police Academy, and everyone from Snellville and Gwinnet are welcome to apply.

The 12-week long program has been designed to give citizens an opportunity to find out more about how the police operate and what they can do in their own lives to prevent crime. An assortment of topics related to law enforcement will be discussed, and the participants will also have a chance to engage on hands on activities with members of the police department.

Those who participate in the program will learn about traffic stops, crime scene processing, and much more, and will also receive a tour of the Gwinnet County Jail. Upon graduation, they will get together for a celebratory dinner. A company that supplies printing services can provide course manuals and other educational materials that can be give to each person who participates in a program like this.

The Citizens Police Academy is open to people ages 18 and over, and there is no charge to take part. The date of the first session will be March 2nd, and anyone who is interested can pick up an application form at the police department. A background check will be performed on each of the applicants before they will be accepted into the program.

Additional information about the academy can be found on Snellville’s website.
