Training Activities ::
Kansas Police Administrators Seminar

The Kansas Police Administrators Seminar (KPAS) is a training partnership effort of the Kansas Association of Chiefs of Police (KACP) and the Kansas Law Enforcement Training Center (KLETC). KPAS is department administration related training, designed for new chiefs and law enforcement administrators plus senior officers and supervisors who are preparing themselves for chief or other upper level police administrative positions. Offered annually, KPAS is especially valuable for new chiefs. It provides instruction in the “basics” of managing a department, its resources and its employees. The course focuses on real world challenges and decision-making that a chief of police confronts daily.

KPAS is a 5-day intensive training seminar conducted at the KLETC facilities with a class size limited to 24 participants who are determined through an application and formal selection process. Attendees are housed on the KLETC campus throughout the session due to the intensity of the training.

The KPAS program has become very popular, recognized and regularly praised for its variety and selection of topics, quality of instruction and career related timeliness. Past graduates have regularly commented that they were able to apply much of the training immediately and often.

For details on the 2014 KPAS, scheduled for August 10-15, please see the seminar Brochure & Schedule and Application. The deadline for applications is May 5, 2014. If you have any questions, please contact KACP Director Doyle King at kacp@cox.net or 316-733-7300.
