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.
