Alpharetta hosts free public safety academy for citizens


January 22, 2014
ALPHARETTA, Ga. This month, Alpharetta will kick off its Citizens Academy for the sixth year running.

This free course gives residents the ability to explore dozens of topics and participate in a variety of hands-on training and observations. Some topic examples include fire safety, tactical response, 911 communications and felony traffic stops.

"This program exposes citizens to an understanding of the many operational layers of Alpharetta public safety," said George Gordon, spokesman for the Alpharetta Public Safety Department. "They get to see what we do, how we do it and why we do it."

Many classes are held in a classroom setting with a public safety instructor, however some are hands-on and in the field, like police and fire ride-alongs.

"Students come away with a much better understanding of how ADPS operates," Gordon said.

This program is just one of many outstanding programs implemented by the Special Services Unit.

Classes begin Jan. 29 and run through May 3, meeting every Wednesday night and some Saturday mornings.

Residents can sign up by filling out applications at www.alpharetta.ga.us.
