Chamblee PD Announces New Date for Citizens Academy

Police Academy

The Chamblee Police Department announces it’s taking applications for its Citizens Police Academy immediately. Beginning Aug. 22, the Academy runs weekly for 10 weeks and will meet every Wednesday from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm at the Chamblee Police Department, 3518 Broad St. Applicants must fulfill the following prerequisites:

  • Be 21 years of age by the first day of class;
  • Submit to a limited background investigation including:
  • Provide a Georgia Driver’s License or Georgia identification card
  • Criminal History
  • Driving History
  • Be approved by the Chief of Police after successfully completing the background investigation
  • Be a Chamblee resident, business owner or business manager

“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.
