Citizens Academy

The Citizens Academy program is designed for residents seeking better understanding of the basics of law enforcement and the policies and procedures of the KCKPD. The hope is that graduates will then share that knowledge with their neighbors in an effort to strengthen the relationship between the community and police. The KCKPD offers the class several times a year in both English and Spanish.

Participants will learn about:

  • department operations
  • criminal investigations
  • crime scene investigations
  • communications
  • traffic enforcement
  • firearms training
  • use of force, and more!

The Citizens Academy is offered FREE of charge. Applicants must be 18 years or older with no criminal record. KCKPD conducts criminal history background checks on all applicants.
