Have you ever wanted to meet a real police dog and see how they find drugs?

Or meet a bomb-sniffing dog?

Or see a real police helicopter?

Do you ever wonder how the King County Sheriff’s Office handled the Green River Killer case?

Would you like to learn how to shoot a gun?

Wait no longer!  The Citizen’s Police Academy is coming to a neighborhood near you!

The Burien and SeaTac Police Departments, in cooperation with the King County Sheriff’s Office, are bringing their popular Citizen’s Police Academy back.

This 13-week program starts Wednesday September 10th. It will be held at the Washington State Criminal Justice Training Center in Burien from 6-9pm.  A catered dinner is included at each class.

Graduates will be eligible for the Ride-Along Program, in which they can spend an entire shift riding with an officer. Participants will also take a field trip to the King County Jail!

This unforgettable experience is completely free for anyone who lives or works in Seatac or Burien. There are two sessions each year, and classes fill up fast. For more information or to register:
