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.  Applicants are chosen on a first-come, first-served basis.


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
  • Auto Burglaries and Residential Burglaries

2023 Program Dates

The program will run each Wednesday for ten weeks, beginning at the end of March, and concluding in early June.  A graduation ceremony will be held on the final day.  

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).
