Important Information: JSO's Spring Citizens Police Academy class has been postponed. A member of the Community Engagement team will keep participants posted regarding this class. Thank you for understanding. (Updated Wednesday, June 3, 2020)
There are two Citizens Police Academy sessions held each year for Duval County residents. 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.
We are currently accepting applications for the Fall 2020 class. Fall class dates are to be determined at this time.
