The Academy will be held in various locations and will cover many topics such as tours of the Sheriff’s Office, ride-a-long opportunities, K-9 and tactical demonstrations, use of force training, emergency driving simulation, crime scene processing, traffic control, law enforcement vehicles, investigations, scenario-based training, use of Taser and other tools for law enforcement use, and much more.
