Citizen Police Academy


The City of Goose Creek's Citizen Police Academy is designed to give citizens a behind the scenes look at the Police Department. The class is not designed to teach citizens how to be police officers, but rather to gain a deeper understanding and appreciation of the field of law enforcement.


Based on sufficient interest, we are planning to host a Citizen Police Academy beginning September 22, 2016, which will last for eight consecutive weeks (1 Thursday evening session each week). The Citizen Police Academy consists of both classroom and demonstrations with some limited physical activities for those who wish to participate. Participants will attend informative sessions that examine all of the duties of the Goose Creek Police Department.  


The courses are open to Goose Creek residents ages 21 and up. Citizens interested in attending should contact Kevin Scott at 843-863-5200 Ext. 2317. Classes will be limited to 25 participants on a first-come, first-serve basis. A background check will be conducted on all applicants.
