About the Academy
The Johnson County Community Police Academy works to promote a stronger relationship between law enforcement and the community it serves through education and hands-on learning. Law enforcement officers and guest instructors meet with participants once a week for eight weeks for classroom and hands-on instruction.
Each student will have the opportunity to ride along with a patrol officer as they perform their duties. The ten weeks conclude with a graduation ceremony.
The forum of the Community Police Academy is not designed to stage a debate about police department policies, but rather to inform and answer questions that community members might have.
