The Placer County Sheriff’s Office is accepting reservations for its Community Awareness Academy in March.
The academy is intended to increase the public’s awareness and understanding of law enforcement’s role in the community through an overview of the Sheriff’s Office’s functions, policies and procedures, and by getting people involved in the community, according to a Sheriff’s Office news release.
Participants are asked to attend all eight classes, each covering a different topic. Classes will be 6 to 9 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays, March 8-31. Attendees will hear from members of the department’s special units, and tour the county’s jails, morgue, 911 dispatch center and the air operations hangar.
The classes will be held in the Community Room at the Placer County Sheriff’s Office headquarters in the Auburn Justice Center, 2929 Richardson Drive, Auburn.
Academy participants must be at least 18 years old, work or live in Placer County and agree to a minor background check.
