Cobb County Government

Citizens Public Safety Academy Program

The Cobb County Department of Public Safety is announcing its Spring 2016 session of the Citizens Public Safety Academy starting on March 8, 2016.

This program provides an opportunity for Cobb County citizens to have an inside look at the various units which comprise the Department of Public Safety. During the course, participants will experience the Emergency Communications Center, Fire, and Police organizations, and the role each plays in protecting the citizens of Cobb County.

There is no charge for the 14-week program, which is scheduled twice a year. Classes are held every Tuesday evening beginning at 6:30 p.m. and the location changes from week-to-week depending on what is being discussed or introduced to the class participants.

Applicants must be 21 years of age and a resident of Cobb County or work for Cobb County Government. The class is limited to 25 pre-screened applicants. If you are not accepted into this session you will be placed on a future waiting list.

Anyone interested in participating should contact the Department of Public Safety Training Center at 770-590-5650 or e-mail Renee Cameron at
