What is the Community Police Academy?
The Community Police Academy was created to forge a partnership between citizens and the Kent Police Department. It is delivered in a series of classes and hands-on experiences that offer straightforward, candid information regarding daily and specialized operations of the police department, while defining the agency’s role in the community.
A wide range of law enforcement topics are discussed. Included in these discussions is an overview of law enforcement, recruiting/testing for new employees, traffic enforcement, evidence, investigations, narcotics, gangs, community education, use of force, K-9, and SWAT. Other topics will include the Chaplaincy program, mock crime scenes, and optional tours of the Kent jail and Valley Communications.
Classes are held at the Kent Police/Fire Training Center, located at 24611 116 Ave SE, Kent. Classes are Wednesdays from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. and are instructed by expert department members.
