Sheriff’s Citizen's Academy
The next Sheriff's Citizen's Academy will be Spring 2019.
The Sheriff's Citizen's Academy provides participants an inside look at the Sheriff’s Office. Citizens receive an overview of the agency, visit the agency’s communications center and detention facilities, learn about District Policing, the Investigative Services Division, drug and gang enforcement, Victim Services, SWAT, Motor Unit demonstrations, ride alongs with deputies and a K-9 demonstration. Attendees will also participate in an actual shoot/don’t shoot decision making process through use of a simulator.
Academy classes are taught by members of the Sheriff's Office command staff as well as civilian personnel. Participants have the opportunity to meet with the Sheriff and staff members. Participants are encouraged to ask questions and actively participate. Our goal through the Sheriff’s Citizen's Academy is to provide a greater awareness of the multi-faceted aspects of the Sheriff’s Office and our role in the community through the education.
The Sheriff’s Citizen’s Academy is offered by the Flagler County Sheriff's Office in the Spring and Fall each year. Classes meet twice a week for six weeks on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm. The class will be held at the Sheriff's Office Emergency Operations Center, 1769 E Moody Blvd # 3., Bunnell FL 32110.
