The police departments of Kenmore, Shoreline, Woodinville and the King County Sheriff’s Office are sponsoring a Citizen’s Academy on Wednesdays starting March 21 and concluding May 23 from 6 to 9 p.m. at Kenmore City Hall, 18120 68th Ave NE.
The academy is a great way to increase the understanding between citizens and their police department through education. The 10-week 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.
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.
This is a unique experience and it’s offered at no cost to Kenmore residents and those who work in the City of Kenmore.
Registration and approval of submitted applications are required in advance. Applications are available online or at Kenmore City Hall, 18120 68th Ave NE.
