Citizen Police Academy news flash


Session XLVII


WHEN: August 25, 2022 – November 17, 2022 

HOW OFTEN: Every Thursday Night - 6:30 p.m. until 9:30 p.m.

COST: Only $25 (cash, checks, or money orders accepted) 


Join Session XLVII of the Citizen Police Academy to find answers to common questions about law enforcement. 

You may also ask . . . why should I spend my free time listening to cops talking about their jobs? That’s a fair question. Here’s just a small sample of the many benefits you will receive from attending the Citizen Police Academy (CPA): 

  • Classy-looking golf shirt with the CPA logo; 
  • Notebook explaining police lingo, various laws, real crime reports, etc.; 
  • 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 car (prisoners ride in the back!); 
  • Shoot a police officer’s gun at the firearms range; 
  • Up-close look at a SWAT Team in operation; and 
  • Free snacks each week. 

When you attend the Jacksonville Beach Citizen 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 November 17th, the only question you will have left is, “What will I do with my Thursday nights now that the academy is over?!?”
