The Kaufman County Sheriff’s Dept. is seeking students for its Citizens’ Police Academy, which starts Tuesday, Sept. 25.
Those over 21 years old who are interested may contact James.Stroud@KaufmanSO.com.
The course is free but does require a background check due to the sensitive nature of some of the information.
The academy will be held every Tuesday from 7-9 p.m. through Nov. 13.
The goal is to provide participants with a working knowledge of different departments within the sheriff’s office, as well as to dispel misconceptions and provide a platform for communication between law enforcement and the public.
The curriculum includes detention, patrol, investigations, crime scene and communications.
