City taking applications for Citizen Police Academy


The Danville Police Department is accepting applications for Citizen Police Academy. 

The Danville Police Department is currently offering the Citizen Police Academy to the residents of the City of Danville. Participation in the Citizen Police Academy is free of charge to those who are accepted.

The academy designed to offer individuals an opportunity to learn more about the operations of their police department, police procedures, and to foster an enhanced understanding and level of cooperation between the police and the community we serve. It will not transform citizens into police officers, but rather heighten awareness of both the public and the police in an effort to develop a partnership between both.

The Citizen Police Academy’s primary objective is to provide interactive instruction in many basic police department tasks as well as provide an opportunity to have a hands-on experience with the some of the tools of the police trade.

The academy will run one Tuesday per week for eight weeks beginning March 31 at 6 p.m. at the police department. This session will host up to 12 participants. You can find the application on our website and you may email them or drop them by the police department. The registration deadline is March 20. For more information, please contact Sgt. Nicole Jeffries at 434-797-8898 Option 1 or
