Cass County Sheriff's Office set to begin 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
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.

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.
