Get to know the Alexandria Police Department (APD) in an abbreviated half-day session. Thanks to the popularity of our 10-week Community Police Academy, APD is offering one half-day class the end of January 2020.

This academy allows residents and community members to learn about various aspects of the Police Department during the summer months. Topics will include patrol operations, use of force policies, the K9 Unit, Special Operations Team, crime scene investigation and criminal investigations.

This one half-day session is being offered on Saturday, January 25, 2020. The session will be held at Alexandria Police Department Headquarters at 3600 Wheeler Avenue from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Session will start with registration at 8:30 a.m.

This free class is limited to 45 participants per session. Participants of this half-day Community Police Academy must be at least 18 years of age and live or work in the City of Alexandria. In addition, criminal history checks will be conducted on all applicants for final approval of acceptance.

The curriculum covers the core elements that are essential for participants to gain a greater understanding of police operations. As a result of their participation, residents can make more informed judgments about APD and its daily operations. Simultaneously, APD is able to acquire a greater understanding of the views and concerns of the community through an enhanced relationship with the public.

For more information on the Community Police Academy or to request an application, visit the Community Police Academy online or e-mail the Volunteer Office.

The deadline for registration is January 17, 2020.
