Shoreline Police Citizen's Academy Set

Registration is open for the free 10-week course.

The Shoreline Police Department invites you to this year’s Citizen’s Academy.

Shoreline, Kenmore and Woodinville police departments work with the King County Sheriff’s Office to present a 10-week program called the Citizen’s Academy. 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, Drug Investigations, Homicide and Major Crimes, Automatic Fingerprint Identification System (AFIS), Guardian One Helicopter and Marine Patrol.

The 2013 academy will be held every Wednesday evening from March 13th through May 15th, 6-9 p.m., at Kenmore City Hall, 18120 68 Ave. N.E., Kenmore, WA, 98028.

Class size is limited and will be filled on a first come, first served basis. Applications are available at the main Police Station and Neighborhood Storefronts. There is no cost for this great experience.

Registration and an application are required. If you wish to attend the upcoming session, please click here for a Citizens Academy Application (pdf).

Having attended this program in the past, I can say with certainty that it was very enlightening and worthwhile. The trickiest part is getting to Kenmore at that time given the traffic, and that's only gotten worse. When I went, we even got to schedule and have a ride-a-long, which took awhile to get scheduled, but was extremely eye-opening in terms of variety of areas handled and how incredibly observant, detail-oriented, and knowledgeable the officers are. I think they've eliminated that aspect, however.
