Sheriff's Office Hosts Free Citizen's Law Enforcement Academy

Minden, NV – The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office—in partnership with the Douglas County TRIAD—proudly announces the citizen’s law enforcement academy. There is no cost to attend, but space is limited. The Citizen’s Law Enforcement Academy will be held Tuesday, September 5 through Friday, September 8 from 1-5 p.m. Class location is the Judicial and Law Enforcement Center, located at 1038 Buckeye Road, Minden, Nevada. This academy is open to Douglas County residents.

The goal of the Citizen's Law Enforcement Academy is to provide crime-fighting educational programs and information to 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 citizens within our county.

The academy will include training and instruction on a variety of law enforcement topics, including uniformed patrol procedures, jail/custody procedures, criminal investigations, crime scene processing, narcotic and gang investigations, criminal justice system, criminal prosecution, court procedure, dispatch operations, identity theft and fraud prevention, law enforcement volunteer programs, fire prevention, youth services, and emergency medical information. 

To sign up call the Douglas County Sherriff’s Admin Office at 775-782-9901 (Mon-Fri, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.).
