Citizens Police Academy
2017 Academy Information
When:  TBA 

Description of the Academy
The Lilburn Police Department Citizens Police Academy (CPA) is a 10-week program that meets once a week on Thursday evenings from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. This program is designed to provide members of the Lilburn community with additional knowledge about their police department. It allows citizens of Lilburn to become more educated on Lilburn Police Department procedures and the pressures associated with law enforcement. We seek and invite applicants from a diverse group of people who either live in or work in the City of Lilburn. There is no cost to attend the Citizen Police Academy.

The purpose of the Lilburn Police CPA is to accomplish three goals:
To educate community members in Lilburn Police Department procedures and the pressures associated with law enforcement
To allow the citizens of Lilburn to meet the men and women who serve them
To provide Lilburn Police Department officers the opportunity to meet and hear from the citizens they serve.

Presentations consist of lectures, demonstrations, videos, computer presentations, and "hands on" participation. Each participant is given the opportunity to ride with an officer for one shift. Lilburn Police Department CPA members are given a realistic view of the Department.
