Citizens' Police Academy Offered to Delta County Residents

The Delta County Sheriff’s Office is offering a Citizens’ Police Academy for Delta County residents. The academy will take place at the Technical College of the Rockies (Vo Tech). The first class will be in March 1, 2018, and classes will be every Thursday after.  Classes will be from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM, depending on topic.

The purpose of the Citizens’ Police Academy is not to recruit citizens to become police officers. The academy is designed to provide the Delta County Community with an overview of the Delta County Sheriff’s Office and other local Law Enforcement Agencies operations and to increase the level of understanding and cooperation between the community and officers. The classes in law enforcement provide a way to educate and develop positive relations with the citizens. It is an ongoing process to build community cooperation, understanding, and good will.

You can receive an application from the Delta County Sheriff’s Office or by selecting the link below. Applications must be turned in to the Sheriff's Office at 555 Palmer Street, Delta, prior to start date. All applicants must be a Delta County resident and must be 18 years or older. All applicants must complete the application and a background check. Class will be limited to 20 cadets, depending on applications received.  

Topics include Patrol, Investigations, K-9, SWAT, Crime Scene Investigation, Dispatch, Jail, Traffic Enforcement, Traffic Accident Investigation, Scenarios and more. Each cadet will get one ride along with a Deputy or Sergeant.
