KENNER — Class #28 of the Kenner Citizens’ Police Academy will begin on Tuesday, August 14, 2012 at 6:30 p.m. at the Kenner Police Complex located at 500 Veterans Blvd.  Kenner Police Chief Steve Caraway and the Kenner Police Department encourage citizens of Kenner and those working in Kenner to participate in this unique opportunity to learn more about police operations.   

Students attend free classes one night per week for 13 weeks; receiving instruction from trained police officers who are certified in their fields.  The Academy provides detailed coverage about how the police department works in the following areas:  Patrol Division functions, crime prevention, criminal investigations, computer forensics, K-9 Unit, crime scene procedures, criminal and domestic violence laws, narcotics investigations, traffic enforcement, physical fitness, use of police force and self-defense, gang awareness and S.W.A.T.  Students receive a tour of Headquarters and the jail and participate in a ride along with a police officer.  Upon completion of the program, a graduation ceremony is held for students. 

Graduates of the program have the opportunity to join the Kenner Citizens’ Academy Alumni Association (KCPAAA), through which they can lead the community in improving safety and promoting support for the Kenner Police Department.  Alumni members can also volunteer their assistance at various department events.

Graduates may also apply for entry into the KPD Community Police Corps.  This great program gives members the opportunity to volunteer and assist the KPD in its mission.
