Citizens Police Academy

The Citizens Police Academy is a free 12-week program designed to provide citizens who live and work in the city a unique opportunity to learn more about the Greenville Police Department (GPD). The academy features both a classroom setting, with presentations by GPD personnel from multiple divisions, and a variety of learning experiences outside the classroom. 
Participants will gain firsthand knowledge about the inner workings of the department and see what officers and operators go through on a daily basis by visiting the communications center and participating in a ride-along with a GPD officer. The academy is offered annually in February and March, and most classes are held at the GPD Training Center at 688 Mauldin Road.
