The King City Police Department is offering a 13-week Community Police Academy, which will provide participants an up close look at police work. It builds partnerships between police and the community by allowing residents to participate in police training and education. The Community Police Academy educates community residents in law enforcement issues and best practices, strengthens safety and security, and enhances relationships between law enforcement officers and the community they serve.
The academy does not train participants to be future police officers, but is designed to inform citizens about police policies, procedures, laws and resources. Community Police Academy participants will be introduced to a variety of topics such as patrol techniques, criminal investigations, crime scenes, narcotics, officer safety, community policing and defensive tactics. Academy sessions are instructed by law enforcement officials, veteran police officers, City officials and community partners. Participants will have the opportunity to meet with the Chief of Police and departmental staff members.
The program will begin on March 5th and registration is NOW OPEN! There is no cost to participate and a graduation certificate will be presented to all who complete the program. For more information, please see the attached registration information below or contact Sergeant Bowen at 831-386-5992.
