Youth Citizen's Academy in Auburn Coming Up



The Placer County Sheriff's Office is hosting its first-ever Youth Citizen's Academy on two consecutive Saturdays, July 19 and July 26, in Auburn, from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

The academy is for kids that have a strong interest in a career in law enforcement. 

The youth program is modeled after our popular Citizen's Awareness Academy, which is held twice a year. The Youth Academy will be geared for kids ages 12-17, and will focus on educating them on how the sheriff's office functions, and offer insight into what a career in law enforcement entails. They will visit many of the sheriff's office facilities and meet staff members.

 During the two-day experience, kids will be treated to presentations and tours from the following divisions: patrol, investigations, evidence, K9, training, bomb squad, boat patrol, search & rescue, dispatch, Special Enforcement Team and the jail.  

This unique experience is open to kids who reside in Placer County. The academy is limited to 35 attendees, so sign up now to reserve a spot. Pre-registration is required and kids must agree to attend both days. A signed waiver by a parent or guardian is also required. Kids will need to bring a sack lunch.  

Classes will be held at the Placer County Sheriff's Office, 2929 Richardson Drive, Auburn. For further information or to make a reservation, please contact Deputy Victoria Skellenger at 916-652-2425, or email her at vskellen@placer.ca.gov
