The Key West Police Department is convening its Citizen’s Police Academy, beginning on Jan. 29, and the public is invited to join.
Classes are held every Wednesday from 6:30 to 9 p.m. for 10 weeks.
The academy offers hands-on experience, placing participants in the shoes of a Key West Police Officer to better understand what it’s like to be a law enforcement officer. Participants are paired with on-duty officers and ride with them during their shift. Space is limited, so early registration is recommended. Applications are available at https://www.cityofkeywest-fl.gov/. For information, or to reserve a seat, call Lt. Joe Tripp at 305-809-1027.
