TPD to host public input sessions on police training practices

The Topeka Police Department (TPD) will host two public input sessions in September to allow community members to learn more about the department’s training practices, and to provide individuals with the opportunity to give input.

At the sessions, TPD’s Training staff will present the current curriculum for the Basic Police Training Academy, as well as continuing education for veteran officers.

After the presentation, community members will be able to provide public comment and ask questions, with a limit of four minutes per person.
