LCSO Citizens Academy set for September

The Linn County Sheriff’s Office is offering a Fall Citizens Academy, and applications are now being accepted.

The Fall academy runs from Sept. 27 through Dec. 13. Classes are every Wednesday from 9 a.m. to noon. There is also a Sunday field trip to the firearms range and Animal Control, with that date to be determined later.

Citizens Academy students are introduced to each of the LCSO divisions and specialty teams. They receive classroom instruction and hands-on training in areas such as patrol, detectives, corrections, firearms, defensive tactics, swift water rescue, prisoner transport, and search and rescue.

The minimum age for attendees is 18. Applications for those as young as 16, provided they attend and take part in Citizens Academy with their parent or guardian, will be considered.
