“We’ve had a great response and significant interest on the part of our Chamblee residents and business operators, so we decided to develop this class,” said Chamblee Police Chief Donny Williams. “We’re happy to provide a service that not only educates members of our community on the skills and abilities needed to be a modern-day police officer, but also shows the partnerships we build in the community and their importance.”
Topics include: types of patrol; criminal investigation; jail and dispatch; special operations, which includes code enforcement and the park ranger; citizen response to active shooter(s); quality of life crimes; and criminal procedure and crime trends.
The class coordinator is Sgt. Guy Antinozzi, A-Team Patrol Supervisor and Training Division Instructor, a four-year veteran of the Chamblee Police Department. Other Chamblee Police Officers will provide instruction in areas in which they are subject-matter experts.
Email Sgt. Antinozzi for the application, or it can be filled out at the station. For questions, please call Sgt. Antinozzi at 470-395-2447.
