Chief Jim Lynch and the Raytown Police Department are pleased to announce the graduation of the department’s Fall 2015 Citizen’s Police Academy participants, Wednesday, 10-21-15. The 16 graduates learned about the police department and how it operates. Participants used the FATS (Fire Arms Training Simulator) system and participated in very active role playing car stop scenarios, facilitated by department trainers. Other topics included crime analysis, patrol operations, SWAT, and many other police functions, units, and divisions. The instructors were the police officers and civilians that actually perform the work.
The next Citizen's Police Academy will be held in Fall 2016, with specific dates to be released at a later time.
