[ARCHIVED] Register Now for Dublin Police Services' 2021 Citizens Academy

Registration is now open for Dublin Police Services' 2021 Citizens Academy. The program will run each Wednesday for ten weeks, beginning March 31, at 5:30 p.m. Participants must be at least 18 years old and live or work in Dublin.  Instructors plan to begin the Academy on Zoom with one-hour sessions, 5:30 to 6:30 p.m., and will then transition into a safe, socially distant format, extending the time period to 8:00 p.m., as COVID-19 restrictions allow.  

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.  In addition to age and residency/work requirements, participants must successfully complete a background check, sign waiver forms, and be approved by the Chief of Police.  Due to COVID-19 regulations, sessions are limited this year to the first 20 registrants who qualify.  

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 & Residential Burglaries

Activities may include a tour of Santa Rita Jail and a taste of officer training at the Emergency Vehicle Operations Course (EVOC), pending changes to COVID-19 restrictions.
