Citizen Patrol Group PhotoHave you always wanted to learn about law enforcement? Do you want to help the Sheriff's Office as a citizen of the community? The Douglas County Sheriff's Office in partnership with TRIAD is offering a Citizen's Law Enforcement Academy at no cost.

In this program, Douglas County attendees become more aware and comfortable with law enforcement services, law enforcement officers, and in return will develop a better understanding of how our law enforcement community operates. Attendees will leave the program with knowledge of how they can help the Sheriff's Office as citizens of our community.

The academy includes training and instruction on a variety of law enforcement topics, including: uniformed patrol procedures, jail/custody procedures, criminal investigations, crime scene processing, narcotic and gang investigations, boat patrol, fraud prevention, citizen patrol volunteer programs, and more.

The class size is limited to 25 students. Participants must be at least 18 years of age and reside in Douglas County. Applicants must be willing to submit to a background check with no felony convictions.
