The mission of the Citizen Police Academy is to educate citizens about the policies, functions and services of the Jonesboro Police Department in an effort to encourage a partnership with the community that will enable community-led problem solving, and “Bridge the Gap” for positive police and community interaction. The department will benefit from the academy by being afforded a better understanding of the views and concerns of our community, making us more accountable to the public that we serve.
