Since 2002 the Kenton County Police Department has dedicated resources towards educating our citizens with the following programs: Kenton County Police Citizens' Academy, Youth Citizens' Academy, Internet Crimes Against Children, Elder Abuse, Identity Theft and Stranger Danger. Our community programs are designed not only to educate but also to build police-community partnerships.
School Resource Officer Program
We currently have three full-time School Resource Officers assigned to three schools throughout Kenton County. Our School Resource Officers begin their days before the first school bus arrives and remain at the school until the last school bus leaves. Throughout the course of the school day, they provide a myriad of services including, but not limited to, law enforcement duties, site security, counseling services, and instruction in programs like "Character Counts".
Identity Theft and Crimes Against the Elderly Seminars
Officers from the Kenton County Police Department have developed a program to educate our citizens on identity theft and elderly crime. The program is presented at various venues throughout the county as requested.
