The Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office has opened registration for next month’s Community Academy.
It’s a free course that DCSO says provides an in-depth look at what the sheriff’s office does and how its divisions work.
There will be classroom instruction, a tour of the jail and the search and rescue facility. DCSO said participants can also go on a ride-along with the patrol and attend an optional Saturday session to get hands on training in law enforcement scenarios and emergency vehicle operations.
If you’re interested, these are the dates to put on your calendar:
- Tuesday, May 2, 2023, 6pm-9pm
- Thursday, May 4, 2023, 6pm-9pm
- Saturday, May 6, 2023, 8am-5pm (optional day)
- Tuesday, May 9, 2023, 6pm-9pm
- Thursday, May 11, 2023, 6pm-9pm
Those who are interested can apply at the sheriff’s main office 63333 West Highway 20 in Bend or download an application online at this link.
The deadline for receiving applications is next Friday, April 14. Those who are admitted will be informed by April 21.
