Citizens' Academy

The Citizens' Academy teaches the public about law enforcement operations, fosters kinship between the community and law enforcement, and promotes community policing by supporting and encouraging citizen involvement.  The Academy is held each spring, and is open to those who reside or work in Dublin.  Participants must be at least 18 years old, and must successfully complete a background check, sign waiver forms, and be approved by the Chief of Police.

Topics
Experienced law enforcement staff educate participants on subjects such as:
  • Crime Scene/Evidence Collection
  • Gangs and Drugs
  • Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Services
  • Traffic and Radio Operations
Activities include a tour of Santa Rita Jail (the fifth largest jail in the nation), and a taste of officer training at the Emergency Vehicle Operations Course (EVOC).
