Citizens invited to attend Police Academy

The Kent County Sheriff’s Department will be hosting the Fall Citizens Police Academy on Thursday, Sept. 20. Attendees will meet every Thursday for 11 consecutive weeks. Class will run from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m.

This interactive academy will give the citizens of Kent County the opportunity to experience all aspects of their sheriff’s department. Participants will get to go on patrol with a police officer, take a correctional facility tour, and go through some of the same split-second decision-making training that is a requirement of police officers. Crime scene technicians, detectives, the tactical team and marine unit will also be a part of the learning experience.

For more information or to sign up for this academy, please visit www.accesskent.com, click on Courts & Law Enforcement, and then click on Sheriff Department.

For additional questions, please contact Sandi Jones at the Kent County Sheriff’s Office (616) 632-6221 or e-mail her at sandi.jones@kentcountymi.gov.
