What’s it like to drive a police car? Or fire a gun? What happens when you get booked into jail or call 911? There are two ways to find out. We recommend the second: sign up for the Sumner Police Citizen’s Academy.
The Academy will hold sessions on Tuesdays and Thursdays 6-8 pm starting February 9 through March 8 with one Saturday session (driving the cars!) on March 5.
Find out for yourself how your police department operates with interactive sessions covering the topics of
- Investigations & Narcotics
- Criminal Law/Justice System
- Defensive Tactics Demo
- Field Trip to 911 Communications
- Field Trip to Puyallup Jail
- Metro Animal Control
- K-9 Demonstration (Patrol & Narcotics)
- Patrol & Traffic Procedures
- Firearms Practical
- EVOC Practical (this is where you drive the police vehicle!)
Applicants must be 18 years of age or a high school senior, live and/or work in the City of Sumner, have no felony convictions or outstanding warrants. All applicants are subject to a background check.
