The Avery County Sheriff’s Office would like to invite any citizen of Avery County who is interested in the second annual Citizens’ Academy. The Academy is scheduled to start June 13th and will run until August 22nd 2011.

The classes will start at 6:00 p.m. and are scheduled to end at 9:00 p.m. Class will be held one night per week and will cover all the different aspects and functions of the Avery County Sheriff’s Office. Classes will be a combination of lecture and interactive activities. Topics include SRT and special operations, civil process, patrol, crime prevention, crime scene, identity theft, and a tour of the Adult Detention Center.  The Academy is created to be an interactive educational program that will enlighten citizens about Avery County’s history and the governmental process. The Academy allows citizens to have a behind the scenes look how the Sheriff’s Office works. We also want to allow our citizens to have a positive relationship with sheriff office personal.
The program is offered free of charge. Applicants are required to be 18 years of age, and provide their own transportation to and from training. Acceptance is subject to review of applicant’s criminal record and police contact history. Sufficient lead time is required so applicants are encouraged to submit their applications by June 6th 2011.

“The Avery County Sheriff’s Citizen’s Academy is a tremendous opportunity for the people of Avery County to support their local law enforcement officials by obtaining a greater understanding of the duties, responsibilities and various functions of the Sheriff’s Office. The Academy provides a platform to encourage the officers on a one-on-one basis which in turn forms a bond of unity throughout the community. The result is a win-win situation for the citizens and the Sheriff’s Office of Avery County.”

It also showed me that Avery County has the highest quality of law enforcement personnel in whom the citizens of Avery County can have complete confidence and great pride in.”                                     -Dennis Quackenboss graduate of the Citizens’ Academy-
