Montezuma County Sheriff’s Office
Citizens’ Training Academy
The Montezuma County Sheriff’s Office offers the Citizens’ Training Academy program beginning Wednesday September 11, 2013 and ending Wednesday November 13, 2013.
The Academy provides a unique opportunity for citizens to learn about the duties and services provided by the Sheriff’s Office. Students will receive instruction in all functions of the three Divisions within the Sheriff’s Office: Patrol, Detentions and Investigations, as well as auxiliary services which support the Sheriff’s Office. The curriculum includes introduction to evidence gathering, crime scene management, case preparation and prosecution.
The Academy is offered on Wednesday evenings for ten weeks. There is a minimal fee charged to offset costs.
This is a great opportunity for citizens who have an interest in modern law enforcement. The curriculum does not fulfill State of Colorado certification requirements for peace officers.
If you are interested in this Program, contact any member of the Sheriff’s office command staff at (970) 565-8452.
