Brookhaven, GA, May 20, 2016 – The Post Reports – Having graduated several classes of citizens who have completed the popular Brookhaven Police Department’s (BPD) Citizen Police Academy, BPD has launched the inaugural Hispanic Citizens Police Academy.
The BPD Citizen’s Police Academy is designed to give residents an overview of how their Police Department works. It will give students insight into the basics of police work, the logistics of department operations as well as its enforcement and crime prevention programs.
This program is not designed to make police officers out of students but, will create a growing number of responsible, well-informed neighbors with the potential to influence others about the Police Department’s methods and goals.
All areas of Department Operations will be covered, including:
- Criminal Justice System
- Constitutional Law
- Patrol Division
- Communications / 911
- Traffic Enforcement
- Accident Investigation
- Community Oriented Police Services
- Criminal Investigations Division
- Firearms and Use-of-Force
Everyone who lives or works in Brookhaven is invited to attend the Citizens Police Academy. The class is open for all those over 21 years of age. A criminal background check will be conducted on applicants and the Police Department reserves the right to deny enrollment to those with a criminal history.
