What’s it like to be a deputy? Find out at our Citizen’s Academy

This is a chance to learn all about the sheriff’s office in a boot-camp environment. The academy is a one day, 8-hour class at the Highlands Ranch Law Enforcement Training Facility.

The academy is on Thursday, August 27.

Students learn about patrol operations, traffic enforcement, the jail, crime scene investigations and much more. You’ll also see demonstrations from the K-9 Unit, SWAT and other special teams. Students will also get to play deputy in a state-of-the-art shooting simulator.

“This is a chance to really see what it’s like to be in law enforcement,” said Sheriff Tony Spurlock. “You’ll get to experience some of our training and make split-second decisions about who is a friend and who is a foe. After the academy, you’ll have a new respect for people who put their lives on the line every day.”

If you want to attend the academy, please fill out the Citizen’s Academy application. Send it to Deputy Chad Teller at CTeller@DCSheriff.  The deadline to apply is August 21, 2015. If you’d like to know more about it, call 303- 660-7544.
