The Douglasville Police Department offers a Handgun Clinic to the public on the first Tuesday of each month.
Citizens are encouraged to attend to learn about Georgia firearm laws, firearms safety, handling, and marksmanship. Attendees are given the opportunity to shoot in the Police Department indoor firing range with certified firearms instructors.
Admission is free. Participants must be 18 years of age, and pass a background check.
For further information email firstname.lastname@example.org or call Lt. Mark Edwards at 678-293–1677.
The Douglasville Citizens Police Academy is a highly successful ten week program that offers the opportunity to learn about all divisions of the police department. We encourage citizens to sign up to get a firsthand look at police operations.
The classes meet once a week and department staff members present law enforcement–related training classes including topics such as community oriented policing, law enforcement recruiting, criminal investigations, traffic safety, K-9 units, S.W.A.T. team, firearms, domestic violence, narcotics, Gangs, the 911 system, etc.
The intent of this Citizen Police Academy training is to showcase police department functions to the community for a better understanding of what law enforcement deals with on a daily basis. This program allows for some hands-on exposure and is not only informative, but fun. On top of that we feed the participants dinner!
If you have an interest in attending a session of our Citizen Police Academy, please email email@example.com or contact Lt. Mark Edwards at 678-293-1677.
