KPD Citizen's Police Academy Taking Applications

Posted: 07/14/2016
The Knoxville Police Department is currently taking applications for the Citizen's Police Academy.

The class is scheduled to start August 18, 2016 and will meet every Thursday from 6:30-9:30 p.m. for 12 consecutive weeks.

The goal of the Knoxville Police Department's Citizens' Police Academy is to create and develop a growing nucleus of responsible, well-informed citizens who have the potential to influence public opinion concerning police practices and service delivery. Graduates of our program will fulfill the critical role of providing input and information to their neighborhoods which will increase citizen involvement on issues of mutual concern. This active citizens participation will improve the quality of life and build lasting and productive partnerships between our police department and the communities we so proudly serve.

If you or someone you know is interested please contact Officer Matt Gentry at 215-1303 or

Information, requirements and applications are available at KPD Citizen's Police Academy.
Applications are due by July 22, 2016.
