Citizen Police Academy of the Social Circle Police Department

The Social Circle Police Academy is a tuition free, five-week program designed to introduce members of the community to the Social Circle Police Department.

The Academy is designed to teach citizens about the philosophy, policies, and guiding principles of law enforcement and ethical conduct governing police services in our community. The sessions that will be covered during this Academy include but are not limited to, the structure of the police department, uniform patrol functions, criminal investigations, use of force and use of force considerations, and firearms training. Classes will be a combination of lectures, demonstrations and interactive activities. Participants of this program will meet for (5) weeks on Tuesday evenings at 6:00pm to 8:30pm in the community room located at the police department.

Firearms training will be held during week (5) on that Saturday and will conclude with a graduation ceremony for all participants. Participants must complete a (4) hour ride-along with a Social Circle Police officer.

This ride along is usually an eye-opening experience for many participants as they get to see the real day-to-day activities of the police department.
