KCPD Citizens Police Academy

Have you ever wondered what it’s like inside of a Tactical Squad armored vehicle? Or how crime scene investigators dust for fingerprints? Or what kind of firearms training officers go through? Or do you just want to know more about how the Kansas City Police Department works?

The Citizens Police Academy operates on the premise that informed, educated residents will be more supportive of police officers and promote safety in their communities. Admission to the program is open to anyone 18 or older who has a good standing in the community and is a resident of or works in the City of Kansas City, MO. Each applicant must pass a thorough background investigation.

Registration information is HERE.

Just Off Broadway Theatre, 3051 Central, KCMO

Eve Ensler (The Vagina Monologues) adapts her bestselling book subtitled The Secret Life of Girls Around the World into a unique theatrical experience: a fierce collage of monologues, chat sessions, songs (original music by Charl-Johan Lingenfelder) and dance. A call, a reckoning, an act of empowerment for women and teen girls…and potentially a wake-up call for men and teen boys. Kansas City premiere!
