CITIZEN POLICE ACADEMY
On Nov. 13 I graduated from the most unbelievable education free to Wichita citizens. This is a 13-week class sponsored by WichitaSedgwick County Law Enforcement called Citizen Police Academy. Another session will be held in the spring. Attendance is at the beautiful new Law Enforcement Training Center on the east side of the WSU campus. During the 13 weeks we not only learned about the various activities and dangers our officers are involved in day in and day out, but we also got to go and participate in many of their activities; e.g. touring the shooting range, jail, 911 facility, fingerprinting lab and the courts and records areas. In addition we learned about meth operations in the city/ county, gang activity, etc. The highlight for me was riding on his 10hour shift with Officer J. O. Burnett and participating in his calls. Thanks to him, to Sgt. Kenneth Kimble and to Sgt. Steven Olsen and the many who shared with us. Sign up. You will not be disappointed.
