SHERIFF'S DEPARTMENT TO HOLD A CITIZENS' ACADEMY

SHERIFF'S DEPARTMENT TO HOLD A CITIZENS' ACADEMY

The Doña Ana County Sheriff's Department will be holding a Citizens' Academy beginning in August.

The Citizens' Academy is designed to increase the understanding between citizens and the Sheriff's Department through education. The intent is to acquaint citizens with law enforcement's role in the criminal justice system and provide increased understanding of the tasks Deputy Sheriff's face in their daily work. With better understanding, it becomes easier for Deputy Sheriff's and citizens to find realistic solutions to neighborhood problems.

The Citizens' Academy is one of the many ways in which the Sheriff's department is striving to develop a sense of cooperation in our common goal of providing a safe and secure community for all of Doña Ana County's residents. To apply, please fill out an application at the Doña Ana County Sheriff's Department, 845 N. Motel Blvd. You must be at least 18 years of age, have no felony convictions, and no misdemeanor arrests within the last 12 months prior to the academy. Any of these requirements may be waived by the Sheriff or the Academy Director.
