There are still slots open for the Carson City Sheriff's Office's Citizens Academy set to begin Feb. 2.
This informative academy explains what the Sheriff's Office does, how they do it and why it is done in a particular manner, as well as the role that community policing plays. Participants will learn about patrol operations, arrest procedures, defensive tactics and units specializing in abatement, illegal drugs and reducing graffiti.
The Carson City Sheriff's Office will be hosting the Citizens Academy from Feb. 2-April 3. Classes will be held on Wednesday evenings from 6-9 p.m. in the Ormsby Room at the Carson City Sheriff's Office. Some classes may be held at off-site locations.
The academy is open to adults 18 years and older with a preference given to Carson City residents, local merchants and their employees and may be of particular interest to senior citizens. There is no charge for the class, but due to a limited number of openings some applicants will not be able to attend. The deadline for completed application is Monday, Jan. 24.
