Every year the Harrisonburg Police Department opens its doors to citizens within the community to learn more about the various jobs and duties of the department.

Not only do the participants get more insight into HPD, they get hands-on experience and participate in different scenarios that officers could potentially encounter.


The academy will be held every Thursday at the Public Safety Building, 101 North Main Street from 6:00pm until 9:00pm.

Classes will begin in early March and conclude in May.
