Ride Along with Suwanee's Finest
Suwanee's Citizens Police Academy allows residents a better understanding of the day-to-day functions of police officers as well as an opportunity to patrol Suwanee's streets alongside an officer. The next academy will be offered Monday evenings April 16-June 28 from 6:30-9:00 pm at the Suwanee Police Training Center, 2966 Lawrenceville-Suwanee Road.
The academy offers classroom training and hands-on experiences in crime scene processing, traffic stops, building searches, crime prevention, and narcotics identification and provides an understanding of the risks and responsibilities of officers. The program is designed to open and maintain communication between citizens and the police department.
Classes are free and open to the public, but space is limited and preference is given to Suwanee residents or those who work in the City of Suwanee. A criminal and driver history background is required for all applicants. For additional information and an application, contact Officer Richard Pope at firstname.lastname@example.org or 770-904-7641. Notarized applications are due Friday, April 12, 2018.
