Sheriff's Citizen Academy - Classes Begin September 5th

Post Date:08/14/2019

The Sheriff's Citizen Academy will present a wide range of topical training subjects condensed from the standard training curriculum of sheriff's deputies. presenting this program, we hope to provide a broad educational experience which will acquaint attending citizens with the mission of sheriff's personnel and the requirements of law to which officers must conform while carrying out their prescribed duties.

Through attendance and participation in the Sheriff's Citizen Academy:

  • Citizens will be able to make more informed judgments about the Sheriff's Office and law enforcement activities.
  • The Sheriff's Office will become more aware of the feelings and concerns of the community, as expressed by attending citizens.

 Citizens and Sheriff's Office representatives will have an opportunity to explore together, some of the traditional suspicions and misconceptions generally harboured by both citizens and sheriff's deputies. open discussion, a more harmonious climate for relationships may be established.

The Academy begins on September 5, 2019 (Thursday) and will consist of 2 months of sessions that meet once a week, on Thursday evenings, from 6:30 p.m. to 9:45 p.m. and four (4) Saturday labs. A variety of different classes will be provided. The classes will be held at the First Baptist Church, located at 405 N Main St, High Point, NC 27260, in the class room area. Labs will be held at various locations.
