Rome Police announces 2019 Pastoral Police Academy

June 21, 2019—12:00 P.M.


The Rome Police Department will conduct it’s second Pastoral Police Academy August 5th  2019.

The academy has been a huge success in Rome and other cities in Georgia as it gives local
clergy first-hand information on how and why the Department operates and examines the culture of police work and the organization. It also provides an excellent opportunity for local Pastors to interact with Department members.
The Pastoral Police Academy (P.P.A.) is an 8-week program which gives community pastors first-hand information on the role of police officers in the Rome Police Department (RPD).
Students meet every Monday evening from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM. The program involves both classroom and interactive instruction with participants receiving the same information that our police recruits and officers are provided.
The P.P.A. is NOT an offer of employment but is a volunteer program to educate those respected members of the community who want to hear information about law enforcement and the Rome Police Department. Those interested in the Pastoral Police Academy can complete the application at, stop by the Rome Police Training Center located at 2626 Callier Springs Rd., or contact the training staff at 706-236-2399.
