Public Safety Academy

Ever wondered how Crime Scene Techs collect evidence or why patrol cars have computers inside? Would you like to watch a SWAT demonstration or ride in the bucket ladder? If so, join us for Public Safety Academy! This is an educational experience like no other that will teach you the ins and outs of the Meridian Police and Fire Departments.

The Meridian Police and Fire Public Safety Academy will provide community members with a behind the scenes, in-depth look at Meridian public safety. During the academy, attendees will learn about police and fire procedures, communications, and specialty units. Academy classes are taught by police and fire personnel. Participants will have the opportunity to meet the Police and Fire Chiefs as well as staff members.

With this academy, our goal is to bring a greater awareness and understanding of public safety's role in the community through the education and engagement, provided by the Public Safety Academy.

Registration for the 2023 Public Safety Academy is now closed. Registration for the 2024 Academy will begin in January 2024.
