Henry County Citizens / Police Encounter Program

Citizen / Police Encounter Program

The Citizen/Police Encounters class is designed to encourage safe interactions between the Police and the residents of Henry County. The programs focus is on teenagers who have had little to no interaction with Law Enforcement and encourages parents to have healthy conversations with their children about Police encounters. In this class, teens along with a parent, will learn how to have safe interactions with members of Law Enforcement.

HCPD requires the attendees to complete an application and sign a waiver form to participate in the program. The class will consist of positive dialogue from both the instructor and the citizens, a power point presentation, and training scenarios involving the class that would reflect real life police/citizen encounters.

Based on current events in today’s society and the negative way that Law enforcement is portrayed in the media, we feel that it’s important to inform the public that we remain committed to serving the community and our mission has not changed. This program is helpful as we strive to be as transparent as possible while conducting all of the various interactions that we have with the public.
