KPD announces start of Citizen Police Academy

Posted: Updated:

KILGORE (KYTX) -- The Kilgore Police Department will soon be hosting its annual Citizen Police Academy. The purpose of the Academy is to familiarize citizens with the operations of the police department. The Academy includes classes on patrol procedures, criminal law, narcotics, search and seizure, tactical operations, investigations, crime scene processing and sex offender registration. The classes will not only consist of classroom presentations but hands-on activities such as investigating a crime scene using modern forensic techniques, police firearms demo and Taser demo. Students also have the "option" to ride with a patrol officer and witness the street-activity our officers encounter on a day-to-day basis.

 

Classes will be conducted at the Kilgore Police Department (training room) on Thursday nights and will last approximately two hours. Classes will begin at 6:00 p.m. (6:30 p.m. thereafter), Thursday, February 28, 2013 and will conclude on Thursday, April 25, 2013. Applications can be obtained at the Kilgore Police Department Administrative Office, during normal business hours or online at "www.kilgorepolice.com". Deadline for applications is February 21, 2013. Work or reside in Kilgore. At least 21 years of age. No felony convictions. No felony arrest over the last two years. No Class A or B misdemeanor arrest last two years. Honorable discharge if served in military.
