There are two Citizens Police Academy sessions held each year. The class meets from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., once a week for 12 weeks (except on holidays) and is taught by JSO employees.
During the 12-week course, you will have the opportunity to learn how each division in the agency operates including each specialized unit, such as the Bomb Squad, K-9 Unit, Narcotics Unit and the SWAT Team. Class participants also tour the Pre-Trial Detention Facility (jail), Montgomery Correctional Center (prison), and the firing range.
If you have questions please contact the Community Engagement Office at 904.630.2160.
