Citizen's Police Academy Application

We are currently accepting applications for the Spring 2019 Citizen's Police Academy. Class dates are to be determined.

There are two Citizen’s Academy sessions held each year. The class meets from 6 p.m. - 9 p.m., once a week for 12 weeks (except on holidays) and is taught by JSO employees.

During the 12-week course, citizens learn how each division in the agency operates including each specialized JSO units, such as the Bomb Squad, Narcotics and the SWAT Team. They also tour the Pre-Trial Detention Facility, Montgomery Correctional Center and the firing range.
