Community Police Academy accepting applications.

Metro Nashville, February 14, 2023 - The Police Department is pleased to announce that applications are now being accepted for the 50th (spring) session of the department’s popular Community Police Academy which will be held at the Madison Precinct, 400 Myatt Drive, on Tuesday evenings for 12 weeks beginning on March 7 and running through May 23. Nashvillians interested in learning about the operations and law enforcement strategies of their police department are cordially invited to apply for this free and very informative course.

Classes will be held on Tuesday nights from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. The deadline for applications is February 28.

Apply for the Community Police Academy

Participants will learn about police work through the perspective of a variety of guest speakers, including members of the police department’s specialized areas. There will be presentations from the TITANS Unit, Entertainment District Unit, Youth Services, Domestic Violence, Criminal Investigations, Violent Crimes, and Traffic Divisions. In addition, there will be an opportunity to ride along with an on-duty officer and visits to the Police Department Crime Lab, gun range, and Aviation Unit.

“The Community Police Academy is a really unique and fun way to learn about law enforcement in Nashville and our police department’s many components,” Chief John Drake said. “Folks from neighborhoods throughout Nashville are invited to apply.”

Each participant should commit to attending at least 10 of the 12 weeks, be a Davidson County resident/business owner at least 18 years old, and have no arrest record. While completion of the course gives residents an understanding of the workings of the Metropolitan Nashville Police Department, it does not make a participant a certified law enforcement officer.

Some 2,000 persons have attended the Community Police Academy since it began in 1995.
