Have you ever wanted to know what it’s like to be a Police Officer? Do you want to know more about the on-scene and behind-the-scenes operations of the Kerrville Police Department? If so, you should consider enrolling in our Citizen Police Academy.
The Citizen Police Academy is designed to give the Citizens of the city of Kerrville a working knowledge of the Kerrville Police Department. The course consists of eleven classes instructed by personnel from various divisions of the department. Although the course has a particular emphasis on patrol, it also covers many diverse topics such as Criminal Investigations, Evidence, Firearms, Traffic, Special Operations Unit and Communications. Each student will also be given the opportunity to ride with a patrol officer during a tour of duty.
The next class #13, which is offered FREE of charge, will meet once a week on Thursdays, from 6:00pm-9:00pm in the Training Room at the Kerrville Police Department at 429 Sidney Baker, beginning on August 1, 2013, and graduating on October 17th.
