The Chamblee Police Department announces it’s taking applications for its Citizens Police Academy immediately. Beginning September 11, 2019, the Academy runs weekly for 10 weeks and will meet every Wednesday from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm at the Chamblee Police Department, 3518 Broad St. Applicants must fulfill the following requirements:
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 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 its opportunities,” said Chamblee Police Chief Kerry Thomas. “This is a great example of the acceptance of a shared responsibility. Residents and police are 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.
