The class is offered “in order to strengthen the bond of friendship and cooperation between our citizens and our police department,” Lt. Rob Pendleton said. “This will also help our citizens gain a better understanding of the risks and responsibilities of our officers.”
Classes meet over 12 weeks at 6 p.m. beginning Aug. 29 through Nov. 14. at the Snellville Police Department, 2315 Wisteria Drive. Topics include domestic violence, traffic stops, building searches, narcotics identification and a tour of the Gwinnett County Jail. The program also includes a ride along with a Snellville police officer.
