What is the Citizens’ Law Enforcement Academy?
The Sheriff’s Office Citizens’ Law Enforcement Academy is a 23 week course providing an overview of various law enforcement topics. The program explains the different aspects of police work using classroom discussions and hands-on demonstrations. The Citizens’ Academy offers community members insight into how Sheriff’s Deputies perform their duties and how the Sheriff’s Office serves the community and has been an effective tool in garnering public support.
The Citizens’ Academy is not an accredited law enforcement certification program, but is designed to provide citizens insight about the internal workings of the Sheriff’s Office and law enforcement in general.
Instruction consists of one 3 1/2-hour class each week for twenty three weeks, and a final graduation ceremony. Classes are limited to 25 students. View the schedule for the Citizen’s Law Enforcement Academy.
