JPD accepting apps for Citizens’ Police Academy

The Jackson Police Department’s next Citizens’ Police Academy is scheduled for March 14.

The mission of the Citizens’ Police Academy is to educate and inform the community, to provide a forum for police and community interaction, to identify community problems, needs and concerns; and to foster a partnership with the community and the department in working toward creating a safer community.

In each session, a qualified instructor will explain how each division of the Jackson Police Department operates. The weeklong event includes a tour of the Public Safety Communications Center, an overview of the Community Relations/Crisis Intervention Unit, a S.W.A.T and Bomb Squad exhibition and Driving and Firearms Simulator training.

This Academy is conducted from 6-8 p.m. Monday through Friday, and Saturday from 9-11:30 a.m. at the Police Firing Range for the SWAT /Bomb presentation and firearm instruction.

For information and registration, call the Office of Community Relations at (601) 960-1389 or email Renee Walker at
