              Citizens Academy

                  October 6th


The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office is now accepting applications for our Citizens Academy.  The Citizens Academy was established in 1997 to educate the citizens of Montgomery County on how the Sheriff’s Office operates and to promote public safety among our community members.  Classes are designed to be interesting as well as informative.  Citizens are given an opportunity to ride with a Deputy on patrol, tour the County Jail, volunteer at events that are sponsored by the Sheriff’s Office as well as train on the Firearms Training Simulator.  The course is a ‘free’ 6-week course that meets on Monday evenings from 6:00-7:00 p.m. at our office, located at 115 South Perry Street and is taught by Sheriff's Office deputies and/or Correctional Officers.  All material will be discussed during the meetings and neither homework nor physical activity is required.
