Henry County Police Department is taking applications for the Citizens Police Academy

Applications due by Friday, March 17

HENRY COUNTY, GA – March 8, 2017 - The Henry County Citizens Police Academy is now accepting applications for its 11 week class session that meets every Tuesday from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. from March 21 through May 30.


The goal of the Citizens Police Academy is not only to help local residents better understand police work in their community, but to develop stronger ties between our community and police agencies in an effort to better address crime issues. Community Based Policing is an important and vital aspect of crime control in any community. It is through community cooperation and planning that we can best ensure quality police services in an organized effective crime prevention effort.


The instruction provided at the Citizens Police Academy will include topics relevant to Henry County crime problems, such as crime prevention and community based policing, drugs, gangs, DUI and traffic enforcement, investigations, the Use of Force Model and use of force, firearms safety and the law and a tour of the Henry County Jail.


Classes are free of charge, but involve a commitment to attend an 11-week session. Students that participate in the range class will be required to purchase a certain type of ammunition for the range weapon. Most of the classes are held at the Henry County Police Department Training Room.


Potential candidates for the academy must be at least 21 years of age, live or work in Henry County, have no prior felony arrests and no misdemeanor arrests within six months of the application.


To apply, visit www.henrycounty-ga.org/police and print the application and background consent form and submit them either in person or by mail to Henry County Police Department, 108 S. Zack Hinton Pkwy, McDonough, GA 30253 by Friday, March 15, 2017.


For more information on the academy, please contact Joni Miller in the Uniform Patrol Division at 770-288-8285 or by email at jmiller@co.henry.ga.us.
