The Leon County Sheriff's Office Citizen's Academy offers a different and exciting program unique to our area. Indeed, the curriculum and training are not what you might expect. Typically, the students attracted to the academy are a culturally diverse group of people including bankers, businessmen and women, judges, housewives, school teachers, media representatives, retirees, college students and citizens from all walks of life.
Participants meet on Tuesday evenings for 10 weeks. They learn about virtually every aspect of a deputy's job including patrol operations, traffic enforcement, criminal law, SWAT and hostage negotiations, crime scene investigations, corrections and many other areas.
The Citizen's Academy doesn't limit participants to classroom training. Students are given the opportunity to:
- Ride with a deputy during a tour of duty.
- Tour the Jail facilities and Courthouse.
- Attend a SWAT demonstration at the Law Enforcement Academy.
- Shoot some of the high powered weapons used by Officers.
We at the Leon County Sheriff's Office believe this leads to better understanding between citizens and law enforcement through education.
