Lacey Police Department Invites Community Members to Apply for Fall Community Academy

The Lacey Police Department (LPD) and our community work together to ensure we have a safe place to live, work, and play. This partnership is critical in maintaining Lacey’s high quality of life and allowing the LPD to proactively respond to emerging issues facing the community. As a way to enhance this connection and transparency with the community, in 2022 the LPD revamped and relaunched their Community Academy following a 10+ year hiatus.

This fall, the LPD invites community members to take part in a 6-week training course that provides a deeper look into the LPD facilities, operations, training, outreach practices, and more. In addition, participants will have an opportunity to take part in hands-on training with defensive tactics, less-lethal tools, mock scenes, etc.

If you would like to learn more about the LPD and attend the Community Academy, apply by Wednesday, September 6 – space is limited.

Please email your completed application and a copy of your driver’s license or state ID card to You can also drop it off at the Lacey Police Department at 420 College St. SE.
