The City of Covington Citizens Police Academy was created to give the residents and corporate citizens of Covington a chance to see, understand, and interact with the inner workings of the City of Covington Police Department. Participants learned about the available services, resources and programs offered by the department. More importantly, participants meet and interact with the men and women who provide these services.
Specifically, sessions cover the structure of the police department, patrol functions, criminal investigations, specialized units, firearms training, use of force, and use of force considerations. Classes are a combination of lectures, demonstrations, and interactive activities. Two classes are held each year; one in the Spring and one in the Fall. For more information about joining the Citizen’s Academy, please contact Lt. Gene Nuqui at 770-385-6555.
