The Department is on NextDoor where information is shared directly with residents of Athens-Clarke County. We also welcome community members to join us for in-person chats or virtually for discussions as they become available. In addition, the Department offers tours of our facilities, ride-alongs, and the opportunity for members of the public to attend our Citizen Police Academy. This 10-week program gives the public an overview of the Department through classroom and hands-on instruction from various aspects of police work. Graduates of the course will have a better understanding of the operations of the Department and a greater awareness and appreciation of the challenges and decisions faced by Athens-Clarke County police officers each day.
