Apply Now For Free Fall 11-Week Community Seattle Police Academy

The Seattle Police Department recently published information about the July 28 deadline to sign up for their free Community Police Academy: 

SPD’s 2017 Fall 11-Week Community Police Academy (CPA)

Learn firsthand about how the Seattle Police Department works. The CPA is designed to educate the public in the operations of the Seattle Police Department (SPD), while also giving the Department an opportunity to obtain valuable feedback from the community. The purpose of the Community Police Academy is to increase understanding between the SPD and community members who reside inside or outside of Seattle through education and interaction. 
Community participants will become familiar with various facets of the SPD and gain insight into law enforcement's role in the criminal justice system and the daily work of police employees. With increased understanding, Seattle's community and police can work together and achieve realistic solutions to neighborhood problems relating to crime, fear of crime, and neighborhood decay. This class is both fun and educational and often challenges the myths and images of law enforcement by providing a realistic view of police procedures.  
Applications are due Friday, July 28, 2017. The 11 week session begins on September 7 and end on November 16 from 5:30-9:30pm.  .
