Join the Napa County Sheriff's Department Citizens Academy

Editor's Note: Napa County Sheriff's Department released the following announcement.

Napa County residents are invited to participate in the 10th Sheriff Citizens’ Academy, a 10-week, 12-session course intended to provide participants an opportunity to interact with members of law enforcement while learning and performing (through role-playing) the duties of a law enforcement officer.

The sessions begin March 12 and run through May 14, and take place on Wednesday nights from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., with additional Saturday sessions on April 5 and May 10. All sessions are three hours long. Applicants must be at least 18 years old, have no prior felony or misdeameanor convictions that imply moral corruption, be able to handle graphic material and must live or work in Napa County.

The Academy is intended to

  • Increase communication and build trust and understanding  between the Sheriff’s Department and community members;
  • Provide education and insight to citizens concerning the job functions of a law enforcement officer;
  • Create a non-threatening setting for citizens to share concerns with Sheriff’s Department employees; and
  • Foster a group of well-informed “graduates” who will share their knowledge with others.
The Academy is not intended to prepare participants for a career in law enforcement.All sessions will be held in the Sheriff’s Department building at 1535 Airport Blvd in Napa. The deadline to apply is Feb. 28 at 5 p.m. 

The application is available at countyofnapa.org/sheriff/CitizensAcademy or at the Sheriff’s Department. Contact Sgt. Michael Bartlett at michael.bartlett@countyofnapa.org or 707-299-1307 with questions.

Cool I always wanted to have abusive power over others and get a sweet pension. Oh and. Don't forget the free Starbucks and donuts.
