The highly anticipated return of the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office Citizens’ Academy is around the corner and we are now accepting applications. The academy will begin on Wednesday, March 15, 2017, and is a 10-week program designed to provide Jefferson County residents with hands-on experiences and information about how the Sheriff’s Office functions. The class will be held each Wednesday evening from 6-9:00 p.m.

Participants will learn about the many aspects of law enforcement from veteran deputies who teach in their own areas of expertise. In a classroom setting — enhanced with tours — citizens will explore various aspects of law enforcement and acquire firsthand knowledge of patrol, criminal investigations, K-9, Bomb Squad, detention operations, and more. Each class provides insight into the challenging tasks deputy sheriffs and investigators must face daily.

If you’ve ever been curious about law enforcement and how it really works, or perhaps have an interest in exploring a career in law enforcement, this academy is the place for you. Participation in any physical activities is strictly voluntary.

Participation in the academy requires a commitment of one night a week for ten weeks. There is no fee for the academy and participants must be residents of Jefferson County and at least 18 years old. Space in the class is limited, so don’t delay. Once the academy is full, applicants will be placed on an eligibility list for 2018.

For further information and an application, visit our website, or contact Janie Gonda, Crime Prevention Deputy, at 303-271-5807 / [email protected]
