On Thursday February 13, SeaTac Police Department’s Street Crimes Detectives made a presentation to a Criminal Justice class at Bellevue College. Detectives spoke with more than 20 students about law enforcement work and the path to become a law enforcement officer in Washington State. The main focus of the presentation was the correlation between today’s law enforcement and the law enforcement television dramas seen on television. The Detectives related their experiences working in the City of SeaTac and King County and gave the students insights to prepare them for the future.
The Community Police Academy, which is sponsored by the Cities of SeaTac and Burien and conducted in association with the King County Sheriff’s Office, is set to start on March 4. Sessions will be held each Wednesday, through May 20 and will run from 6:00 until 9:00 PM.
This is a great way to gain knowledge about law enforcement and the different services the police department offers the community. There are still a few openings for this course. Interested members of the SeaTac community can apply online at: http://www.seatacwa.gov/home/showdocument?id=8043
