King County Sheriff’s Office to host 9-1-1 Citizen’s Academy

Thursday, March 10, 2016

Local residents will have a prime opportunity to learn about the internal workings of the 9-1-1 emergency dispatch center when the next 9-1-1 Citizen’s Academy is held on April 23, 2016.

The academy will educate citizens about the role 9-1-1 Communications Specialists play in the public safety system and prepare them should they ever need to dial 9-1-1.

The all day informative class includes everything from the History of 9-1-1 to how citizens can help 9-1-1 help them! A tour of the KCSO 9-1-1 Center is included, and optional “plug-in” time will be offered to academy attendees on follow-up dates for those interested.

The academy is open to anyone at least 18 years old with no felony convictions. Applicants must live or work in King County.

Applications to attend are now being accepted. Space is limited and completed applications should be turned in by Friday April 15, 2016.

Applications are available on the King County Sheriff’s Office website.  You can also request the applications by calling the Hotline at 206-205-6625.
