Pastoral Police AcademyThe Rome Police Department will be conducting a Pastoral Police Academy beginning on August 6th, 2018. This is the first time the program will be conducted and has been a huge success in other cities in Georgia. The academy gives our local clergy first-hand information on how and why the Department operates, and examines the culture of police work and the organization. It provides an excellent opportunity for our local Pastors to interact with Department members.

The Pastoral Police Academy (P.P.A.) is an 8-week program which gives our community pastors first-hand information on the role of police officers in the Rome Police Department (RPD). The students meet every Monday evening from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm. The program involves both classroom and interactive instruction. Participants are given the same information that our police recruits and officers taking in-service training classes receive. 

The P.P.A. is NOT an offer of employment. It is a volunteer program to educate those respected members of our community who want to hear information on law enforcement and the Rome Police Department from the source.
