Loudoun County residents can learn more about law enforcement and public safety by participating in the 41 Citizens’ Police Academy, which starts April 5.
Loudoun County Sheriff Michael L. Chapman announced the formation of the academy earlier this week.
Members of the class will participate in training classes taught by Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office personnel. The classes provide an overview of all aspects and procedures of law enforcement within the agency. Members may also have the option of participating in a ride-a-long with a deputy after completing the academy.
The free sessions will be held each Thursday evening from April 5 through June 14. Each session will be 2 1/2 hours in length and begin at 7 p.m. Class locations will be announced prior to the upcoming session.
The classes are open to Loudoun County residents 18 and older. To enroll in the Citizen’s Police Academy, please contact Emir Bekric at the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office at 703-737-8238 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m.
Registration will be on a first-come, first-serve basis. Enrollment is limited to 25 participants.
This is the first of two Citizens’ Police Academies held by the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office this year. The next session will be held in the Fall of 2018.
