Citizens Police Academy
The Kent Police Department is pleased to offer the Kent community the opportunity to participate in another Citizens Police Academy. The Citizens Police Academy offers an opportunity for members of the Kent area to see first hand what police officers do and experience. In addition, it offers attendees an opportunity to make a unique connection with the Kent Police Department and its members.
The Citizens Police Academy will involve eleven weekly classes. Each four hour class will be held at the Kent Police Department. Attendees will learn about criminal law, case law, court processes, parking and traffic enforcement, drunk and drugged driving enforcement, criminal investigations, use of force, crime prevention, and specialized police functions. Attendees will also be afforded to experience officer "Ride-alongs" and police equipment. This is a rare opportunity for area residents to see the difference between television and the reality of police work.
The next class will begin on Thursday, February 18, 2016.
Applications, selection criteria, and further information may be downloaded below. Further inquiries may be directed to Lieutenant Mike Lewis at 330.673.3221.
