I am looking at putting together an Advanced Citizens Academy Course that would cover special topics not covered in depth in the Citizens Academy or able to be covered during a HCCSAAA meeting. I would like to see if there is enough interest from the Alumni Association in having an Advanced class offered. The class may be a joint operation between HCSO, SMPD, and KPD.
The requirements that would be set up to attend the course would be:
Attendees must have completed a Citizens Police Academy Course
Attendees must be a member of an Academy Alumni Association in Hays County
Proposed topics that may be covered are:
Family Violence Investigations
Sex Crime Investigations
Crimes Against Children Investigations
Cyber Crime Investigations
Death Scene Investigations (optional Autopsy)
Auto Theft Investigations
Interview and Interrogation
Observation Skills and Identifying Suspicious Activities
Radio Communications and 10 Codes
CPR & AED
Current Issues in Law Enforcement
Crime Prevention Techniques
Citizens on Patrol Certification
Class attendees would be allowed to do a ride out with an officer.
I would like to get your input. Please let me know if this sounds like something our Alumni would like to see pursued.
