The Citizen’s Academy is a great opportunity to learn more about the Sheriff’s Office, in a short period of time.
The class will have a “boot camp” feel, making sure that the students learn as much as they can. The topics will include information about many aspects of law enforcement; including patrol operations, traffic enforcement, detentions division operations, crime scene investigations, K-9 unit, SWAT and there will be plenty of demonstrations. We also plan to run the students through MILO, a shooting simulation machine. At the end of the day the students will be left with a better understanding of the Sheriff’s Office and law enforcement in general.
Space for the Citizen’s Academy is limited and a background check will be conducted on all applicants.
“Understanding the value of everyone’s time, I wanted to present an alternative to the traditional 10-week Citizen Academy, accommodating those that have been unable to attend in the past due to the time commitment. The topics and instructors will ensure that participants leave with a positive understanding of what we do on a daily basis,” stated Sheriff Weaver.
More information will be available on the 2012 Citizen’s Academy as we get closer to the date.
