- The Training Unit is primarily tasked with coordinating, developing, and implementing training for all Department personnel, sworn and civilian. This involves certification courses, specialty courses, annual in-service and re-certification training, and working with other Units to assist with requested or identified training needs. The Training Unit also hosts the Citizen’s Academy – a 10 week community oriented program designed to provide an insider perspective of police work and the legal system to our citizens and business owners. The Unit is supervised by a Sergeant and staffed by three sworn officers (a Staff Instructor, a Range Master, and a Career Development Counselor assigned to the Hampton Roads Criminal Justice Training Academy) and a civilian administrative assistant.
