Citizen Police Academy - The Adventure Begins

Where:  Police Department Squad Room, 101 South Penman Road, Jacksonville Beach

You may ask, "Why should I spend my free time listening to cops talk about their jobs?"  That's a fair question.  Here is a small sample of the many benefits you will receive from attending the Citizen Police Academy (CPA):

  • A classy looking golf shirt with the CPA logo
  • A notebook explaining police lingo, various laws, real crime reports. etc.
  • An in depth examination of a real life homicide
  • Hands on crime scene processing with our own C.S.I. expert
  • Ride in the front seat of a police care (prisoners ride in the back!)
  • Shoot a police officer's gun at the firearms range
  • An up close look at a SWAT Team in operation
  • Free snacks each week

When you attend the Jacksonville Beach Police Academy, you step into the real world of 21st century policing.  A hint...it's not what you see in the media!  We open the doors and shine a light on every aspect of the police department.  On April 6th, the only question you will have left is, "What will I do with my Thursday nights now that the academy is over?!?"
