The Snellville Citizens’ Police Academy is accepting applicants for its 28th session.

The class is offered “in order to strengthen the bond of friendship and cooperation between our citizens and our police department,” Lt. Rob Pendleton said. ”This will also help our citizens gain a better understanding of the risks and responsibilities of our officers.”



The class takes place over 12 weeks beginning on Aug. 29 and ends Nov. 14. The first class will be at 6 p.m. at the Snellville Police Department, 2315 Wisteria Drive. Some of the classes included in this training will be Domestic Violence, Traffic Stops, Building Searches, a Tour of the Gwinnett County Jail and Narcotics Identification. The program also includes a ride along with a Snellville police officer.
