Citizen's academy!

The Citizens Academy offers an exciting behind the scenes look at the Gainesville Police Department and an opportunity to meet the men and women who serve you. Citizen involvement is vital in our fight for safer streets. This Academy provides citizens with a better understanding of police functions and greater insight to police practices and service through interaction and hands-on exercises.

The 2014 Citizens Academy is newly redesigned with interactive experiences and will also feature presentations from the following departments: K-9, Mounted Patrol, Criminal Investigations, Narcot-ics, the Forensics unit, and much more!

The Citizens Police Academy will meet once a week on Thursday evenings from 6:00pm-8:00pm for 10 weeks. During the 10th week, the participants will be honored during a graduation ceremony. Our graduates are encouraged to be ambassadors in the community and share their positive experience with others as well as provided the opportunity to join our volunteer program.
