Police Citizen's Youth Academy

After several years conducting a version of our citizen's police academy, in 2017 the Leawood Police Department teamed with six neighboring agencies to sponsor the Shawnee Mission Explorer Post #8292.

The Explorer Post introduces teenagers to a variety of law enforcement topics starting in September and running through the school year. Post 8292 meets on the second and fourth Wednesdays of each month. Among the topics covered are:


  • Crime Scene Investigation / Evidence Collection
  • Police K9 Unit
  • Patrol Procedures
  • Detective Unit
  • Defensive Tactics
  • Use of Force
  • Search & Seizure
  • Active Shooter
