About the Academy


This 12-week program meets on Thursday evenings from late August-November at the Dublin Justice Center, 6565 Commerce Pkwy., and gives participants insight into the profession of law enforcement and the operations of the Dublin Division of Police. Topics range from Juvenile Law to Internet Predators.

“We want to give residents an inside look into our police department,” said Chief Heinz von Eckartsberg. “Our community is very engaged and involved. We want to continue our partnership with the community by providing a chance for them to learn more about law enforcement.”
