Port Of Seattle Police Citizen’s Academy Begins April 12th
Have you ever wondered about what it’d be like to be a cop?
How about one that works at the airport, or on the waterfront, for the Port of Seattle?
Well, the Port of Seattle Police Department is holding its own “Citizens Academy,” which is a unique opportunity to learn up close and personal about the many challenges facing local law enforcement.
This is a once-a-week, 10-week program that is open to the public at no cost. That’s right â€“ it’s FREE.
It will be held at Sea-Tac Airport on Mondays, from 9 a.m. – 11 a.m., beginning April 12th and continuing through June 28th.
Police officers and civilian personnel who are experts in their fields will teach classes at the Citizens Academy. Each instructor has years of training and street experience, providing insights not ordinarily available to those outside the department.
Subjects include patrol, community policing, recruitment and training, domestic violence, narcotics, dispatch, investigations, crimes scene analysis, SWAT, explosive detection and narcotics detection K-9, and the bomb squad.
All classes are free of charge and open to the public. The class is limited to 25 participants, so get your application in early.
Want to participate? You’ll need:
- The ability to commit to attending a two-hour weekly class for ten weeks
- A background check
Port employees who wish to participate must have their manager’s permission.
