Have you wondered about the work of a Port police officer?
The Port of Seattle Police Department is offering a unique opportunity to learn up close about the many challenges facing local law enforcement. It’s called “Citizens Academy” and consists of a once-a-week, 10-week program offered at Sea-Tac Airport.
Classes will be held Wednesdays, from 10 a.m. to 12 noon, March 4 thru May 6.
Police officers and civilian personnel who are experts in their fields teach the classes at the Citizens Academy. Each instructor has years of training and street experience, providing insights not ordinarily available to those outside the department.
Subjects include: patrol, community policing, recruitment and training, domestic violence, narcotics, dispatch, investigations, crimes scene analysis, SWAT, explosive detection and narcotics detection K-9 and the bomb squad.
All classes are free of charge and open to the public.
