Yes, the Columbus Police Department will require you to attend the entire Police Academy, regardless of your peace officer certification (other than Georgia). The only exception would be if you are able to pass the Equivalency of Training (EOT) program offered by the Georgia Peace Officer Standards and Training Council. Please visit their website for more details about this program.
I am a certified peace officer in another state, do I still have to attend the police academy? Print
