Press Release: Leon County Sheriff's Office
Have you ever wondered what happens on an average work day within the Leon County Sheriff’s Office? What are the daily tasks of each individual unit within the agency and how do they function?
You can find out this information by attending the Leon County Sheriff’s Office Citizen’s Academy and it is FREE! Participants meet one evening a week for ten weeks.
They learn about virtually every aspect of a deputy's job including administration, patrol operations, traffic enforcement, criminal law, SWAT and hostage negotiations, crime scene investigations, corrections and many other areas. And, the "CITIZEN'S ACADEMY' doesn't limit participants to classroom training.
Students are given the opportunity to:
• Ride with a deputy during a tour of duty
• Tour the Jail facilities and Courthouse
• Attend a SWAT demonstration at the Law Enforcement Academy and shoot some of the high powered weapons.
Community involvement is the most powerful force any law enforcement agency has in the fight against crime. Through the "CITIZEN'S ACADEMY", citizens become more involved in making Tallahassee and Leon County a better place to live. We are now accepting applications for the Citizen's Academy to begin August 2013.
HOW TO APPLY: If you live or work in the Tallahassee/Leon County area, you may come by the Sheriff’s Office located at 2825 Municipal Way, or call us between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday at 922-3323.
