2023 FTPD Citizen Academy Completed

The Fort Thomas Citizens Police Academy just completed its 2023 session, and the program was a great success! We really enjoyed getting to know our citizens better as they got an inside look at how the police department functions, and what our officers do in their day-to-day jobs. In the last seven weeks of the program, the participants received in-depth presentations concerning use of force, traffic enforcement and pursuits, accident reconstruction, traffic stops, School Resource Officer program, SWAT, Criminal Investigations, DUI enforcement, and a panel discussion with city leaders and police regarding the future of law enforcement. In addition, participants were afforded the opportunity to take part in optional firearms training and a mock crime scene investigation. By all accounts, the students thoroughly enjoyed their experience, and it was a great way for members of the police department to hear the concerns of our citizens first hand. We are extremely grateful for the citizens who sacrificed three hours a week for ten weeks to be better educated about their local police department! We cannot wait to host the next class!

Lastly, we want to thank the following individuals and businesses for their contributions: Fort Thomas Coffee, Spyder Arms, Tracey Davis with State Farm, Highlands High School, The Fort Thomas Lions Club, Comal, Sis’s on Monmouth, Josh McIntosh Law Offices, Judge Cameron Blau, Assistant Commonwealth Attorney Mike Zimmerman, CVG Police Department, and Northern Kentucky SWAT. Your generosity and expertise helped make this program a resounding success!
