Contra Costa County Sheriff David Livingston is pleased to announce the Office of the Sheriff Citizen’s Academy for Fall 2017.
The Citizen’s Academy provides community members with an inside look at the Office of the Sheriff and its mission, duties, responsibilities and services. Students will be exposed to a variety of important law enforcement topics, procedures and operations, such as patrol, investigations, custody, …
dispatch and search and rescue.
The curriculum and teaching methods are similar to a traditional police academy, but are not designed to train students to become peace officers. The classes are facilitated by law enforcement professionals. Classes are designed to be hands-on and interactive. Students are encouraged to ask questions, participate and interact with Office of the Sheriff staff during the classes.
The Citizen’s Academy is a unique and exciting way to learn about the Office of the Sheriff. It is an opportunity for county residents to learn how the Office of the Sheriff serves you, the community and law enforcement.
The Citizen’s Academy will take place in Martinez. It begins on September 13, 2017 and runs for six weeks. Classes meet each Wednesday with two Saturday sessions.
A limited number of spaces are available, please contact Sgt. Kevin Briggs for more information or an application at Kbrig@so.cccounty.us.
