State Troopers are now taking enrollments for their second Kenai Peninsula Citizen’s Academy, scheduled to begin January 7.
The group will meet every Tuesday for 12 weeks from 6-9pm at the Kenai Challenger Center.
Local Trooper Captain Andy Greenstreet said he got his start in law enforcement through a similar program when he was a student…
Capt. Greenstreet: “It’s community outreach, it’s to let people know more about their Alaska State Troopers, and what it is that we do, and why we do it the way we do. It’s a program for better understanding.”
Troopers discuss topics like: canine operations, search and rescue, and personal safety, in a mixture of classroom and practical settings.
