Cobb residents interested in having an inside look at the county’s public safety department are encouraged to sign up for the fall session of the county’s public safety academy.

Officer Mike Bowman says participants in the 14-week program will learn how the county’s emergency communications center, as well as fire, animal control and police departments, protect Cobb citizens.

The free program begins meeting Sept. 9 and will continue every Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. Locations will vary depending on the topic, Baldwin said.

Applicants must be at least 21 and either live in Cobb or work for the county government. All must pass a pre-screening process.

The class size will be limited to 35 students.

Interested participants should contact Renee Cameron at (770) 590-5650 or by Aug. 15.
