Security & Charity

Have you ever wondered if your home is secure enough?  Are you interested in protecting your family, property, and self? Would learning skills and techniques in Crime Prevention make you feel safer in your home and community? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, join the Golden Police Department for the first ever Golden Safety Academy.

The mission of the Golden Safety Academy is to help educate and empower citizens with information and resources that enhance their personal safety and crime prevention. This free academy will be composed of 12 classes. The classes will be held once a month from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. on the second Monday of every month.   Learn more….
