How much did the Lawrence Police Department spend on its Lawrence Citizens Police Academy last year? And how much does it plan to spend this year? I understand it is quite a bit.
The department spent about $3,800 last year on the academy, Sgt. Mike Pattrick said. The breakdown is about $800 in advertising, $1,000 in administration costs and about $2,000 in employee wages. The department intends to spend the same amount this year with added inflation costs, Pattrick said.
