Public Safety Academy

Beginning with the first Citizens' Police Academy in 1995, the program allowed citizens to come into the Auburn Police Department and learn the details of providing services to our community. Over the year, the annual program developed to include all of Auburn's Public Safety Services: Police, Fire and Emergency Management & Communications to re-launch as Auburn's Public Safety Academy in 2008.

Available to civilians in the community who are 19 years or older, the program is conducted in ten classes from March to April to cultivate a stronger relationship between Public Safety Services and Auburn's residents.

Each week, a variety of presenters will discuss topics ranging from the enforcement of building codes to crime scenes to fire prevention. The final session provides an opportunity to discuss future goals, a presentation from the Public Safety Academy Alumni Association and the Public Safety Academy graduation ceremony. The result is a group of individuals with a better understanding, appreciation and relationship with Auburn Public Safety Services and members in their community.

For questions, please contact Sidney Hancock at and list 'Public Safety Academy' in the subject line.
