CCSO Citizen’s Police Academy

The Citizen’s Police Academy is a 9 week (includes graduation) program designed to give the public a working knowledge of the Charlotte County Sheriff’s Office. Each session consists of nine consecutive weekly night classes at Sheriff’s Office facilities. The instruction is comprehensive and each week separate areas of the Sheriff’s Office are covered.

Major Crimes, Use of Force, K-9, S.W.A.T., Forensics, Recruiting and meeting the Sheriff are examples of some of the topics that are covered. Instruction consists of lectures, demonstrations, tours, and ride along with a deputy.

We hope the graduates of the Citizen’s Police Academy become more aware and better informed about how the Charlotte County Sheriff’s Office operates, and will encourage friends, coworkers and families to join the Sheriff’s Office in this rewarding program. Englewood classes will, for the most part, will be held in Englewood.
