Citizen Academies

There are various citizen academies going on in Henrico County.  Below is one such academy.  Please check out the flyers for other options with the police.

The next Henrico Citizens Academy begins on April 23 and there are still a few openings.  

 The Henrico Citizens Academy is for residents and business owners to get a firsthand, comprehensive look at county operations and services. Classes are led by Henrico officials and staff and take place at a different county facility each week. Classes typically feature a presentation and discussion, facility tours, equipment demonstrations and other activities. Topics include community and economic development; human services; public safety; libraries, finance and recreation and parks; and schools.

 This is a free, 15-hour program will take place from 6:30 to 9 p.m. each Thursday from April 23 to May 28. The academy is open to 35 residents, with space reserved for seven individuals from each of Henrico’s five magisterial districts. Participants must be 18 or older.  Since we have a few extra spaces, if you have members who are not Henrico residents but own Henrico businesses, they are encouraged to sign up if they would like to participate.
