Twice a year, the Burbank Police Department conducts a Community Academy for those who live or work in the City of Burbank. This academy is a terrific opportunity to get a behind the scenes look at the Burbank Police Department.
For thirteen weeks, participants learn from the actual officers who work in the various bureaus and assignments of the Burbank Police Department.
Presentations include topics such as the criminal justice system, the police hiring process, training, traffic control, patrol, detectives, air support, the Special Response Team, Police K-9s, and much more. Participants who graduate from the Community Academy are eligible to apply to become a Burbank Police Department Volunteer.
The fall academy starts on Wednesday, August 24th, and concludes on November 16th, 2011. Space is limited. Applying early is recommended.
Meetings take place in the Community Room of the BPD and start at 6:30 pm, concluding at approximately 8:30 pm. There is no charge for participation in the Community Academy. Applicants are subject to a background check.
Anyone interested is encouraged to obtain an application, by contacting Officer Cindy Guillen at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by coming to the front counter of the Burbank Police Department. Applications are due no later than Friday, August 12, 2011.
