KSP Richmond Post Annual Citizensí Police Academy Scheduled
Date of News Release: 08/29/2013
(Richmond, KY) -- The Kentucky State Police Richmond Post will be conducting the annual Citizens' Police Academy September 17 - December 3, 2013, at 6:00 P.M. EDT. The Citizens' Police Academy will meet weekly on Tuesday nights at the EKU Stratton Building - Room 300, Richmond, KY. Anyone interested in attending the Citizens' Police Academy will be required to complete an application and return it to the KSP Richmond Post no later than September 9, 2013.
The Kentucky State Police Citizens' Police Academy is 11 weeks long and provides an excellent opportunity for citizens, who work or live in Kentucky to become familiar with the day to day operations of the Agency. This will enable participants to gain a better understanding of the guidelines, procedures, responsibilities, demands, personnel, equipment, policies and laws that guide the Agency's decision making process. The academy is not intended to turn citizens into police officers. It does however, allow citizens to learn more about the police operations. Citizens will become better informed as to the actual role of the police and in return, the police will benefit from the wealth of knowledge that citizens are able to share regarding their communities.
Applications may be obtained by visiting the Kentucky State Police Richmond Post at: 699 Eastern Bypass, Richmond, KY 40475 or by calling (859)623-2404.
