Classes are held Monday and Wednesday evenings, beginning March 3 and ending March 26. Participants will hear from members of the department's special units and take "field trips" to the Placer County Jail and morgue, 911 dispatch center,as well as the air operations hangar.
Classes are in the Community Room at the Placer County Sheriff headquarters in the Auburn Justice Center. The center is located at 2929 Richardson Drive in north Auburn's Dewitt Center. Classes are scheduled from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.
The academy will kick off with a welcome by top sheriff's administrators and an overview of how the department works.
On subsequent nights, presentations will be made by air operations, Search and Rescue, the bomb squad, the Special Enforcement Team, the marine unit, investigations, hostage negotiators and the drug task force. There will also be a demonstration by members of the K-9 team.
The academy is intended to provide the citizens of Placer County with an overview of the Sheriff Office's functions, policies and procedures, as well as getting them involved in their community.
