The Pueblo County Sheriff's Office will offer a Citizen's Academy for Pueblo County residents over a period of 11 weeks.
Participants will gain instruction on the inner workings of law enforcement on subjects including Narcotics, Tactical Teams, Firearm Safety and Crime Scene Techniques.
Classes run three hours each Wednesday night beginning March 11.
"National emphasis is being placed on the roles of citizen awareness, reporting, volunteering, and preparedness. This class is our commitment to engage our citizen's and ask each one to place a high value on their contributions to safety and security. We do some fascinating things here, and I encourage people to come learn more." said Sheriff Kirk M Taylor.
The popularity of the Academy has increased over the years and it does have a limited class size of 20 students. Those interested can contact Rosie Harsh 583-6407 or Stefana Adcock 583-6438 for further information, or for an application brochure. Deadline for applications is March 2nd.
