The deadline to register for Cobb’s next Citizens Public Safety Academy is Friday, July 20.
This program provides an opportunity for citizens to get an inside look at the Cobb Department of Public Safety’s three units: fire, police, and the emergency communications center.
Classes for the free 13-week program are held every Tuesday at 6:30 p.m., and the location changes from week to week depending on what is being discussed or introduced to the class.
The fall session is scheduled to begin on Tuesday, Sept. 4. Applicants must be 21 years old and residents of Cobb County or work for Cobb County government.
The class is limited to 25 pre-screened applicants. If a person is not accepted into this session, they will be placed on a future waiting list.
Anyone interested in participating should contact the Department of Public Safety Training Center at 770-590-5650 or e-mail Renee
