The free ten-week course is offered Tuesdays from 6 to 9 pm beginning October 10th and ending December 12th.

The program is informational only.  You will not get a badge at graduation and you will have no law enforcement authority, but you will have a better understanding and appreciation for our law enforcement community.

The course is open to those over 18 years old who can pass a background investigation.
