The Sheriff’s Office is currently accepting applications for its fall “Citizens’ Academy.” This free program is a great way for Benton County residents to learn about their Sheriff’s Office. (It’s also open to Benton County staff members. Several members - including Commissioner Augerot! – have graduated from the program in previous years.)
The Sheriff’s Office is still accepting applications, so please share this with family, friends, and community colleagues. Here’s some basic information you can forward to your email lists:
- The program runs Tuesday evenings from September 5th – October 24th . Class sessions are from 6:30pm – 9:30pm.
- There are also two Saturday sessions scheduled for September 23rd (new date!!) and October 21st .
- More information and an application form is available on the Sheriff’s Office website at: https://www.co.benton.or.us/sheriff/page/2017-citizens-academy
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Stacy Mellem (firstname.lastname@example.org) at the Sheriff’s Office.
