Conyers Police Department to Offer "Citizens Academy"

The Conyers Police Department (CPD) is preparing to offer a Citizens Police Academy for local residents and business owners in the community this fall.

The CPD Citizens Police Academy will offer the eight-week academy held on Thursdays beginning October 7 at 6:30 p.m.  Each session will last approximately two and a half hours and most sessions will take place in City Council Chambers or the Conyers Police Department training room at 1194 Scott Street, with the exception of one session on a Saturday to be held at a nearby firing range.

Academy participants will learn about the various divisions of the CPD, attempt to solve a murder crime scene, participate in various scenarios with a demonstration firearm and run laser devices on heavily trafficked roadways.

Those interested in participating in the Citizen Police Academy are asked to contact Officer Thomas Owen or Officer Debbi Krisher at 770-483-6600 for more information and to request an application.&nb
