Alamance Unified Citizen's Academy

The purpose of this citizens police academy is to strengthen mutual trust and cooperation with the public we serve. It is being executed by the unified efforts of the Graham Police Department, Gibsonville Police Department, Alamance Community College Police Department, Alamance County Sheriff’s Office, and Haw River Police Department. Our agencies are being assisted and sponsored by other community partners and criminal justice-related organizations. It takes this unified effort as most of the agencies in this county are too small to staff a police academy properly. The training and experiences provided to our citizens will include:

• General Police Officer Duties, Standard Equipment Exposure, Rank Structure

• Hiring Practice, Personnel Law, Internal Affairs, Body-Worn Cameras

• Constitutional Law, Civil Liberties, Court Procedures

• Use of Force Decisions and Response to Resistance

• Firearm Exposure, Firearm-Related Policy, Concealed Weapons Training

• Traffic Stop Exposure

• Criminal Investigations

• Traffic Stops, Vehicles Pursuits

• K-9, SRT/SWAT, Unusual Occurrences

• Crisis Intervention Team, Behavioral Health Crises Response

• Law Enforcement Partners


To apply, please contact Asst. Chief Phillips at 336-578-4141 for more information.
