ALEXANDRIA, La. (APD) - The Alexandria Police Department is accepting applications for the 2020 Citizen’s Academy, which will meet from 5-8 p.m. on Tuesdays March 24-May 5.

It also reinforces the principle that for the police to be successful we must have a genuine partnership with our community.”

Participants must be 21 years of age or older and pass a background check which will be conducted on all applicants. Preference will be given to applicants who reside in the City of Alexandria. The deadline to apply is 5 p.m. Friday, March 20, 2020.
