Police Departments across the nation have adopted the "Community Policing" philosophy. Locally, the Smyrna Police Department has implemented different ways of working more closely with citizens on problem-solving in the community.I highly recommend this program for those who want to get more involved in our town and learn about one of the more important services the local government supplies.
The Citizens Police Academy will provide participants with an opportunity to gain a broad perspective of the police profession. The 12 week Academy is designed to give citizens an overview of the department's functions and procedures, while providing a forum for the exchange of ideas and concerns relating to the community. However, be aware the Academy is not designed to train the participants to perform any law enforcement services.
Classes will be taught by department personnel and guest instructors. Participants are always encouraged to express ideas, concerns and questions about any aspect of the department's operations. The classes are scheduled for Thursday nights, from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm. The first class opened on May 1, 1997 with much success, and continues with your support.
