The Kansas City Kansas Police Department Training Academy is now accepting applications for the Fall Citizens Police Academy, which begins Monday, September 9th, 2019, and continues through Wednesday, October 30th, 2019. The Citizens Police Academy classes are held twice a week (typically Monday and Wednesday evenings), from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm.

The schedule may include a couple of Saturday mornings. Details will be discussed during class.
