The Burbank Police Department conducts a community academy twice a year for those who live or work in the City of Burbank. This fall, we are looking to have three separate academies, one in English, one in Spanish, and one in Armenian.

These academies are a terrific opportunity to get a behind the scenes look at the Burbank Police Department.

For eleven weeks, participants learn from the officers who actually 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 Weapons and Tactics team, police K-9s, and much more. Participants who graduate from the community academy may be eligible to become a Burbank Police Department volunteer.

The fall academies begin on Wednesday, September 5th, and conclude on November 14th, 2012. Space is limited. Applying early is recommended.

Meetings take place at 6:30 p.m., at the Burbank Police Station, and conclude at approximately 8:30 p.m. There is no charge for the community academy.

Applicants are subject to a background check.

Applications may be picked up at the police department and should be returned no later than August 29th, 2012.
