Citizen’s Police Academy

The Fulton County Police - Citizens Police Academy is an eleven (11) week program designed to provide insight into the Fulton County Police Department and to heighten awareness of the trends, challenges, and issues our officers face in the accomplishment of their mission.   The course is a combination of lecture and interactive activities which give a firsthand look at the department’s functions, resources, and programs.            

The Citizen’s Police Academy will be held for two (2) to three (3) hours depending on that day’s presentation.   Class locations will vary among the Fulton County Police facilities.            

Applicants must provide their own transportation to and from training.   Acceptance into the program is subject to a review of the applicant’s criminal record and police contact history.   The program will be limited to 16 attendees.   Applicants living or working in unincorporated Fulton County will be given priority seating.   Participation in the program is FREE.

Our goal is to create a better understanding, communication and partnership between the citizens and the police through education, in order to establish a safer community.

Community Oriented Policing plays an important and vital role in reducing crime in any community.
