Commissioner's Comments About Citizens Police Academy
Date of News Release: 09/09/2009
(Frankfort, Ky.) -- Have you ever wondered what a state trooper really does? Have you ever been curious to know more about DNA and what a crime lab can really do with it? What really goes on in an undercover drug investigation and successful prosecution? If you've ever pondered over these questions and had other curiosities concerning the Kentucky State Police, you might be an excellent candidate for our Citizens Police Academy.
The Citizens Police Academy is a dynamic 11-week course that is being offered at each post district across the Commonwealth. Classes will meet one evening each week with dynamic presentations and hands-on demonstrations for those wanting to get better acquainted with their local State Police personnel. Although not all inclusive, the following topics will be covered:
- History of the agency
- Cadet training
- Mission and vision
- Uniform patrol procedures and tactics
- Undercover operations
- Special Response Team (SRT)
- Canine Operations
- Hazardous Devices Unit
- Commercial Vehicle Enforcement
- Crime Laboratories
- New Technologies
- Trooper Island
If you're tired of seeing fictitious Hollywood movies depicting police operations and wonder what really goes on behind the badge, this may be the opportunity you've been waiting for. To learn more about the Kentucky State Police and who we really are, I encourage you to apply. To find out more about a program offered in your area, contact the Public Affairs Officer in your post district by dialing 1-800-222-5555 (in the state of Kentucky only, does not work out of state) or log onto the agency's website at www.kentuckystatepolice.org.
