Citizens' Police Academy

Murray Police Department, Facebook

Police officers understand that often their interaction with the public is during high-stress times, so the Murray Police Department and other forces reach out to explain more about what they are trained to do in an eight-week Citizens' Police Academy with night classes through March and April. On Sounds Good, Sergeant David Howe and Kate Lochte do an overview of the course, which includes the basics of police work, a tour of the 911 call-center, understanding drug investigations, demystifying criminology, a tour of the jail and more.

The Kentucky State Police hold a ten-week Citizens' Police Academy starting tomorrow night, March 19 in Murray. The Academy provides an opportunity to become familiar with police operations, to allow citizens to become better informed about the actual role of a police officer. KSP Post 1 Information Officer Jay Thomas visits Sounds Good to talk with Tracy about the Academy, the longstanding KSP philanthropy Trooper Island and the 2014 GMC Sierra 1500 truck raffle.
