How much do YOU know about the world of law enforcement? All too often a person’s perception of law enforcement is that which is learned from crime-action television shows or movies. Although these captivate the public’s imagination they are not always reality based. Even those that depict “real life” situations only reflect a small portion of reality. In view of this, the Santa Rosa County Sheriff’s Office wants to educate the local citizenry as to the internal structure of today’s policing agencies and the integral part that community oriented policing is playing in the county. By attending the “Citizens Law Enforcement Academy” you will learn how to better protect yourself from being a crime victim, how to handcuff and fingerprint, how to report crime, and the ramifications of committing a crime. You will receive first hand knowledge on the organizational structure of the sheriff’s office, officer training, what constitutes a crime, officer equipment, and how to differentiate between “reasonable suspicion” and “probable cause.” You will witness live demonstrations in the areas of Special Weapons and Tactics Team (S.W.A.T.) and K-9. You will see how a real crime scene is handled and incriminating evidence is collected. You will learn the “Shoot/Don’t Shoot” methodology, how to properly handle firearms, and experience what an inmate’s life is like behind bars. At the conclusion of the class there will be a graduation ceremony. This “FREE” Academy is open to residents age 18 or older. To register for this educational and interesting class, call 983-1236.
