Citizens Police Academy
Submissions for the Spring 2015 Citizens Police Academy are now closed. Thank you to everyone who showed interest. Successful applicants will be contacted shortly.
The Kingston Police will host a spring Academy commencing April 2, 2015 and will be structured as an interactive information sharing evening; similar to a night class. The Academy will be a two hour session from 6:30-8:30 p.m. offered every Thursday evening. Whatever motivation a citizen may have for attending this seven week Academy, the end result will be a community member that better understands the challenges and responsibilities of policing.
The purpose of the Academy is to familiarize citizens with the Kingston Police. Participants will get a glimpse into the operations of the Kingston Police in areas such as traffic enforcement, criminal investigation, forensic identification and police training. Through interaction, participants will quickly learn to gain respect and have a better understanding of people who serve their community. There will also be an opportunity for participants to provide feedback and suggestions to improve the Kingston Police.
Our Academy is supported by the Kingston Police Services Board and members of the Kingston Police. We are looking for mature, adult, community minded individuals who represent a wide range of ages, occupations and reasons for participating. Participants shall work or reside in the city of Kingston. Security checks will be completed before selection of the participants. Participants will receive a confirmation email if selected for the Academy.
