So you wanna be a cop superstar? Live kind of large? A medium-sized house? Sensible patrol cars?

Whether you're looking to more realistically execute a cop fetish or just kill three hours a week, the KCPD wants to help you out. Chief James Corwin posted on his blog Tuesday that enrollment is open for the fall KCMO Citizens Police Academy.

The 10-week class is free for those who live or work in KCMO, and the only prereq is that you can pass a criminal background check. (It's like a meet-and-greet for KC residents who haven't had the pleasure of encountering the police yet.)

You'll get to ride with a real on-duty cop in his real on-duty cop car, and you'll visit helicopter and canine units, the bomb and arson unit, and the KC crime lab. The po' will even educate you about hostage negotiation and narcotics investigations, and it looks like you can even listen to some police dispatches. (Who knows -- you might even get a chance to wow the officers with your fluency in Ebonics and score a recommendation for an open job in the DEA.)

Remember, though, no matter what they say about desk pops, they're a real thing. Just do it and don't look back.

Classes start Sept. 9 at 6 p.m., and applications are available online.
