Ever wanted to know more about the how the Kent Police Department operates? Or what the different units within the department do?

Classes are on Wednesday evenings from 6:30 to 9 p.m. starting on March 25, and are at the Kent Police and Fire Training Center, 24523 116th Ave. SE, on the East Hill.
Some comments from past participants:
“One of the best things I’ve done; I’d even say a game changer for me – not only personally but maybe even vocationally. I cannot express my gratitude enough for this opportunity. Definitely a highlight of my week every week.”
“I’m actually disappointed this class is ending. It has been one of the most interesting things I’ve done in quite a while. Impressed with the organization and with the people I have met over the past weeks.”
