Citizens Police Academy

The Chamblee Police Department is now accepting applications for the upcoming Citizens Police Academy. Each of the 10 classes is designed to provide participants an opportunity to learn about modern-day policing and gives a glimpse into the everyday life of a Chamblee police officer.

"The Chamblee Police Department Citizens Police Academy has become an integral part of the Community Policing Model embraced by the department. Residents gain insight into the department and the department has a growing pool of volunteers having an intimate knowledge of police operations and opportunities,” said Chamblee Police Chief Kerry Thomas. “This is a great example of the acceptance of a shared responsibility. Residents and police working together to make our community safer. I encourage those who live or work in Chamblee to participate in this fun and exciting activity."

The class coordinator is Lt. Guy Antinozzi, B-Team Watch Commander and Training Division Instructor, a five-year veteran of the Chamblee Police Department. Other Chamblee Police Officers will provide instruction in areas in which they are subject-matter experts. Apply today to reserve your spot in the class!
