The Kirkland Police Department is inviting residents of Kirkland to participate in the department’s Citizens Academy. The academy will run every Wednesday from 6-9 p.m. beginning Sept. 26 through Nov. 14.
The Citizens Academy is an eight week program designed to give participants a working knowledge of the Kirkland Police Department. The instruction is comprehensive and each week different areas of the department are covered including: Patrol officer training, investigations, K9, special response team, use of force issues and firearms. Instruction consists of lectures, scenarios, demonstrations, and tours.
There is plenty of “hands on” time for each student during many areas of instruction. The instructors are officers and other personnel from the Kirkland Police Department that will instruct in their areas of expertise. The deadline to apply is Sept. 7.
