 KERN COUNTY SHERIFF’S OFFICE

         COMMUNITY ACADEMY

 

EVER WONDER WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO?

HERE’S HOW YOU FIND OUT! 

The Kern County Sheriff’s Office, as part of our ongoing effort to build partnerships with our community and improve community policing efforts, will be offering a Community Academy to residents of Kern County. The goal of the Community Academy is to build a stronger relationship between the citizens of Kern County and the Kern County Sheriff’s Office.

The Community Academy has been designed by Sheriff’s Office personnel to introduce members of our community to the Sheriff’s Office and the Kern County criminal justice system. The twelve week course will cover topics such as the history of the department, what it takes to become a deputy sheriff, use of force and laws of arrest, patrol procedures, gang investigations, Air Support operations, narcotics investigations, jail operations, force option simulator training, and volunteer services.

The class will be taught by Sheriff’s personnel including deputies, detectives, sergeants and command staff. Participants will have an opportunity to ride along with a deputy sheriff on patrol and experience police work from an entirely new perspective.

Applications are no longer being accepted for the Community Academy, beginning September 24th, 2013.  There is no set date for the next Community Academy, but please continue to monitor the Kern County Sheriff’s Office website for future dates.  If you have any questions regarding the next Community Academy, please contact Deputy Castillo, at (661)868-1682.
