Community Police Academy starts Sept. 14; here’s how to apply


The City of SeaTac joins with the City of Burien each year to invite community members to ‘Community Police Academy,’ a twelve week course designed to increase the understanding between citizens and their police departments through education.

The classes are held in the evenings, and there are presentations by many of the Sheriff’s Office Units with opportunities for hands on experiences, plus a field trip to the King County Communications Center (911 call center).

This is a unique experience, and it’s offered at no cost to anyone who lives or works in the Cities of SeaTac or Burien. The Fall 2017 session will begin on Thursday, September 14, 2017.

Graduates of the Community Police Academy come away with a better understanding of the criminal justice system and an appreciation for the many challenges facing law enforcement in today’s society. This understanding will help community members better assist officers and increase the safety in their neighborhoods and community.

If you are interested in attending, please complete an application (PDF file).

If you have questions regarding the Community Police Academy, please e-mail: Community Service Officer (CSO) Sana Wight at [email protected] (for the City of SeaTac) or CSO Carlos Marquez-Romero at [email protected]kingcounty.gov (for the City of Burien).
