Citizen's Police Academy Starts 49th Class on August 27

Posted: 07/30/2009
The Knoxville Police Department Citizen's Police Academy will be starting its 49th class on Thursday August 27, 2009.

The goal of the Knoxville Police Department's Citizens' Police Academy is to create and develop a growing nucleus of responsible, well-informed citizens who have the potential to influence public opinion concerning police practices and service delivery.

Graduates of our program will fulfill the critical role of providing input and information to their neighborhoods, which will increase citizen involvement on issues of mutual concern.

This active citizens' participation will improve the quality of life and build lasting and productive partnerships between our police department and the communities we so proudly serve.

The Citizen's Police Academy is an excellent opportunity to gain a better understanding of how the Knoxville Police Department is organized and how each unit functions, as well as achieves an appreciation for the daily challenges facing Law Enforcement Professionals.

Requirements:

Must be at least eighteen (18) years of age Must live or work within the City of Knoxville Complete a Personal History Form Undergo a background investigation to include a criminal history check

Class is every Thursday night from 6:30 p.m. until 9:30 p.m. August 27, 2009 thru November 14, 2009.

Applications for the 49th class are due by August 7, 2009.
