The Citizen’s Police Academy provides information about the daily operation of the police department and increases rapport with the public to better inform or dispel any misinformation through an educational process.
The course is a 10-week, thirty-hour program and the 2013 Academy will meet on Tuesday nights from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. beginning on Tuesday, February 26th, 2013.
This program allows Police Officers and Lee’s Summit citizens to interact and exchange ideas about making our community safer.
Topics that are taught include Patrol Tactics, Bomb Disposal, Emergency Services Squad, Drug, Criminal and Juvenile Investigations, Traffic and DWI Enforcement, Criminal Law, K-9 unit, Firearms and specialized weapons.
Applications will be accepted from January 1, 2013 through February 8th, 2013.
Once completed, an application may be dropped off at Police Headquarters, 10 NE Tudor Road, or mailed to the Police Department to the attention of Sgt. Chris Depue.
Applicants will be notified in writing if they have been accepted into the program within 2 weeks of the start date.
