As they do each year, Kenmore, Shoreline and Woodinville Police Departments work with the King County Sheriff's Office to present a 10-week program called the Citizen's Academy. The 2013 academy will be held every Wednesday evening from March 13 through May 15, 6-9 p.m. at Kenmore City Hall, according to a post on the city of Kenmore website.
The academy increases the understanding between citizens and their police department through education. Graduates of the Citizen's Academy come away with a better understanding of the law enforcement role in the criminal justice system and an appreciation for the many challenges facing law enforcement in today's complex society.
The course covers a variety of topics, including: Defensive Tactics, K9, Major Accident Investigations, Homicide and Major Crimes, Automatic Fingerprint Identification System (AFIS), Guardian One Helicopter and Marine Patrol.
Class size is limited and is filled on a first-come, first-served basis. Registration and approval of submitted applications are required in advance. If you wish to attend the upcoming session, please click here for a Citizens Academy Application or copies are available at Kenmore City Hall. There is no cost for this experience.
