 Alexandria Police Department Congratulates the Graduates of the 27th Citizens’ Police Academy

On Wednesday, May 23, twenty-five Alexandria residents graduated from the Alexandria Police Department’s 27th Session of the Citizens’ Police Academy.  A graduation ceremony for the residents was held at 6:30 p.m. at Police Department Headquarters, located at 3600 Wheeler Avenue.  The Chief of Police spoke to congratulate the graduating class on their accomplishment.

The Police Citizens’ Academy was held every Wednesday from 6:30 p.m.to 10:00 p.m. at the Police Department’s new Headquarters at 3600 Wheeler Avenue.  The 10-week Alexandria Citizens' Police Academy provided an opportunity for residents to learn about various aspects of the Police Department, such as administrative philosophy, internal policies and the guiding principles of law and ethical conduct governing the delivery of police services.  Classes were a combination of lecture and interactive activities. Class topics included patrol operations, gangs, crime prevention, crime scene investigations, criminal investigations and the Special Operations team.  The program was offered free of charge. 

The curriculum covered the core elements that are essential for participants to gain a greater understanding of police operations.  As a result of their participation, residents can make more informed judgments about the Alexandria Police Department and its daily operations. The Police Department is simultaneously able to acquire a greater understanding of the views and concerns of the community through an enhanced relationship with the public.
