KCKCC police academy plans moving forward
Construction is underway on a $1.4 million police academy on the Kansas City Kansas Community College campus. The 8,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art building is expected to be ready in Spring 2011.
The current police academy facility is in rented space near K-Mart at 79th and Washington. The new building will provide space for more training and recruit classes and is likely to be used for regional law enforcement training.
The college is paying for construction of the building, which is expected to provide a cost savings for the Kansas City, Kan., Police Department over renting the current space.
