Residents of Conyers will have a chance to get up and close with Conyers police officers while learning and participating in various safety activities.

The Conyers Police Department will be offering a Citizens' Police Academy for local residents and business owners in the fall.

The CPD Citizens' Police Academy will be offering the eight-week course on Thursdays beginning on Oct. 7 at 6:30 p.m. Each session will last approximately two and a half hours and will be at the City Council Chambers or the Conyers Police Department training room at 1194 Scott St with one session being on a Saturday at a nearby firing range.

"The Citizens Police Academy is a program the Conyers Police Department is proud to offer our community at no charge," Chief of Police Gene Wilson said. "It's a wonderful opportunity to showcase the talents of our police officers and give citizens a glimpse at law enforcement at work in Conyers."

Academy participants will learn about the various divisions of the CPD, attempt to solve a murder crime scene, participate in various scenarios with a demonstration firearm and run laser devices on heavily trafficked roadways.

Those interested are asked to contact Officer Thomas Owen or Officer Debbi Krisher at (770) 483-6600 Applications are due no later than Sept. 23.
