Citizen's Police Academy

Citizens Police Academy provides citizens with an in-depth look at all aspects of the Albemarle County Police Department. The eight-week academy educates community members about the work of the ACPD and also helps to build partnerships and foster positive relationships. The graduates of the academy continue to work with the police department and support the ACPD as advocates in the community. From traffic stops, to mental health calls to interacting in the shooting simulator, every graduate will leave with a better understanding of the various facets of law enforcement.
