Sheriff’s Citizen Academy

Cass Co. – Cass County Sheriff’s Office set to begin first Citizen’s Academy. The Sheriff’s Citizens Academy (SCA) initiated by Sheriff Dwight Diehl will give citizens of Cass County a better understanding of the day-to-day operations. An eight-week course gives citizens an in-depth look and hands on training into the career of law enforcement at the sheriff’s office. Citizens will be instructed by deputies on the subject of patrol, jail, communications, investigations, court, and community policing.

The SCA is an 8-week program and courses are held once per week from 6:30 p.m. until approximately 9:30 p.m. Each week a new topic will be introduced and discussed. Citizens will also have the opportunity to ride along with a patrol deputy, work with jail deputies and communication officers. This enables them to observe firsthand how the sheriff’s office handles incidents.

Participants must be 18 years of age or older, have no felony or serious misdemeanor convictions and must be a resident or business owner in Cass County

There is no cost for participants and each student who successfully completes the academy will take part in graduation.

The first Sheriff’s Citizens Academy will begin on September 10, 2008 and is limited to 20 persons. Individuals interested in attending the Sheriff’s Citizens Academy should visit THIS LINK for further information.
