Minden, NV – The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office in partnership with the Douglas County Triad proudly announces the senior citizen’s law enforcement academy. There is no cost to attend, but space is limited.

The goal of the Senior Citizen's Law Enforcement Academy is to provide crime-fighting educational programs and information to senior citizens of Douglas County.  Attendees will become more aware and comfortable with law enforcement services, and law enforcement officers and in return will develop a better understanding of the needs of senior citizens within our county.
