Hamilton County Sheriff Still Taking Citizens Academy Applications

The Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office is accepting applications for the Spring Citizen’s Academy. Space is still available, but please follow the link at the end of the article to register as soon as possible.

The Citizens Academy is designed to promote positive community relations and to provide communications between citizens and law enforcement officials. This unique hands-on learning experience will provide exciting information about HCSO’s high training standards, equipment, K-9s, law, firearms, emergency vehicle operations and much more! The class begins on March 24, 2022 and will last for 12 weeks on Thursday nights from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.

The Citizen’s Academy will be enlightening, educational, and interesting, but you don’t have to take our word for it. Read some of the past Citizens Academy Alumni testimonials:

Debbie H. said, “I thoroughly loved attending the HCSO Citizen’s Academy. The men and women of the department were amazing and gave us a great “behind the scenes” look at the operation of the HCSO & Corrections facility. I looked forward to the amazing topics and hands on experiences each week. They made us feel like we were part of the team. It reinforced how fortunate we are to live in Hamilton County with the HCSO protecting us.”

From Eric. T, “I was very impressed with the openness of all the deputies and staff with the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office. The “curtain” was pulled back and all questions were answered, and the daily operations explained. The Sheriff’s Office truly is a family and as an alumni, I do feel like a part of that family. I encourage everyone to attend and get the real picture of how and why things happen like they do. The classes are informative, interactive and have a personal touch. Please join the class and see for yourself instead of what is on the news and social media.”
