2022 Citizens’ Police Academy
The Dublin Police annually hosts the Citizens’ Police Academy, a 12-week program that gives participants insight into the profession of law enforcement and the operations of the Dublin Police Department. Topics during academy sessions focus on a wide variety of policing activities, including criminal investigations, dispatching for 911 services, community outreach and engagement, the arrest process, search and seizure, traffic stops and more.
The class is open to Dublin residents and non-residents; however, residents are given preference when the class roster is being selected. All applicants must be 18 years or older.
Application deadline | 5 p.m. May 16
