Carroll County Sheriff’s Office
In April of 2017, the Carroll County Sheriff’s Office working in partnership with the Carroll County States Attorney’s Office will be hosting the 2nd Annual Citizen’s Police Academy (CPA). The CPA will cover topics which include, but are not limited to criminal law, traffic law, search warrants, use of force training, crime scene investigation, K9 demos, specialized weapons and tactics, etc. The academy will be open to selected members of the community who have completed a registration process and been pre-screened by members of the agency. The academy is scheduled to last approximately (8) weeks and during this time will be covering all the aforementioned topics. The Citizens’ Police Academy’s primary objective is to afford an opportunity for community, business and religious leaders to become informed and educated about the many aspects of police work. The Academy is designed to give the attendees exposure as to why police respond to various situations in a particular way and how they ultimately handle those incidents.
We believe the academy experience will be a pleasant introduction to the role of policing and its role in society. The ultimate goal of the Citizens’ Police Academy is to foster relationships between law enforcement, communities and businesses. We hope to create an alliance that leaves us with voices in the community to act as ambassadors to build solid partnerships, creating a better quality of life for those we serve.
