The KENMORE CITIZEN POLICE ACADEMY is designed to foster greater understanding and appreciation for the work done by the Kenmore Police Department in hopes that the Police and the public will work together to provide for the safety and peace of the Kenmore community. It provides Kenmore residents and business persons an opportunity to learn more about the Kenmore Police Department through an informational and interactive educational program that explores the daily operation and services provided by the Police Department. Throughout this eleven (11) week program, participants will engage in interactive instruction both in and out of the classroom setting. Since its inception, the Citizen Police Academy has had over 200 attendees.
Class instruction includes:
- A tour of headquarters
- Drug Awareness
- Fire arms/range
- Accident Investigations
- Crime Scene Processing
- Juvenile Aid Bureau
- Criminal Law
- 911 Dispatch
- Family Offenses and Domestic Violence
- Patrol Ride Along
The program is taught by Kenmore Police Officers and is free of charge.
The Citizen's Police Academy began in 2001. Since that time, graduates of the program have formed the CITIZEN'S POLICE ACADEMY ALUMNI ASSOCIATION. The Alumni Association hopes that its efforts will promote the Citizen's Police Academy and the excellent service and commitment of the Kenmore Police Department. Through working together, the Citizen's Police Academy Alumni and the Kenmore Police Department hope to encourage community interest and support for law enforcement and that through this effort citizens will be served more effectively, crime will be reduced and the Kenmore community will be safer.
The Citizen's Police Academy Alumni Association will be gathering together socially and to provide community service designed to foster community interest in law enforcement. For example, the Alumni Association, in conjunction with the Masons, will sponsor a Family ID Video Program during KENMORE DAYS. This free service will provide free video record of children or any other family member to assist authorities in the event that person is missing.
