Community Awareness Academy Reservations Now Open



Auburn, CA -- Reservations are now being taken for the Placer County Sheriff Office's Community  Awareness Academy, which offers an inside look at the law enforcement agency.
      
Attendees are asked to attend all eight classes, each of which covers a different topic.  Classes are held Monday and Wednesday evenings, beginning Weds., Sept. 3 and  ending Monday, Sept. 29. 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. The goal of the academy is to provide a greater awareness and understanding of law enforcement's role in the community. Attendees must be at least 18 years of age, work or reside in Placer County and agree to submit to a minor background check.

A reservation is required and the deadline to sign up is August 15. To reserve a spot, call Community Services Officer Amanda Rogers at (530) 889-6922 or email arogers@placer.ca.gov
