CITIZENS POLICE ACADEMY - Fairfax County, Virginia

Lorraine and I attended the Fairfax County Citizens Police Academy this spring -- this was time well spent. We learned a little about nearly every facet of Fairfax County law enforcement: training (at the Academy), traffic, patrol, call center operations, animal control, gangs, major crimes, narcotics, financial crimes, explosive ordnance disposal, canine, neighborhood patrols (bikes!), crime analysis, and the Adult Detention Center (which was offered by the Fairfax County Sheriff's Office).

If you're a resident of Fairfax County, this is 35 hours (or so) that will be spent wisely: CITIZENS POLICE ACADEMY - Fairfax County, Virginia.
