Kauai Police Department to host Citizens Police Academy

By Star-Advertiser staff


The Kauai Police Department will hold a Citizens Police Academy, a program designed to give residents a hands-on look into the department, as well as enhance police and community relations.

Police Chief Darryl Perry said: "While the program is modeled after a police academy, it is not intended to be a citizens patrol group or an offer of employment. It simply gives people a better understanding of the demands and challenges of police work, and the culture of law enforcement."

The 13-week program, set to begin on July 11, combines both classroom and field instruction. Most classes will be held at KPD headquarters in Lihue but will also include a visit to the Kipu Pistol Range and a police ride-along.

Applications for the academy are now available at Ka Hale Maka'i o Kaua'i, Lihue Headquarters located at 3990 Kaana St., Suite 200; or online at www.kauai.gov/police

Academy hopefuls must be Kaua'i residents, at least 18 years of age with a valid driver's license, who have never been convicted of a felony, DUI, domestic violence offense or petty misdemeanor within the past five years.

For more information on the Citizens Police Academy, including a course schedule, visit www.kauai.gov/police or call Lt. Paul Applegate at 241-1606.
