About The Citizen's Academy
The Orange County Sheriff’s Department is proudly offering a county-wide Citizens’ Academy. The Citizens’ Academy is a 9-week informational series designed to give citizens an inside, in-depth look at the daily operations of the Orange County Sheriff’s Department. The academy class meets once a week for a 3-hour period. Most classes are held at the Orange County Regional Training Academy in Tustin, with the exception of a few field trip weeks. The first 8 weeks include interactive course instruction and field trips provided by a variety of Sheriff’s Department personnel who are experts in their respective fields. The last week is a graduation celebration.
Some materials covered in the Citizen Academy are:
Basic Patrol Procedures
K-9 Unit Demonstrations
Tactical Training Center
Orange County Jail Tour
Coroner’s Office Tour
The Citizen Academy is intended for personal growth only, and does not qualify students for a career in law enforcement. A career in law enforcement requires an extensive application process and training program.
If you are at least 18 years of age, have no felony arrests and are interested in public safety, we would encourage you to take part in this community program. Applications are given priority according to the order in which they are received and first priority is given to residents in Orange County Sheriff’s Department contract cities. If you would like information about the Citizens’ Academy, please contact Public Affairs at (714) 647-1840.
