Have you ever wanted to know more about police work?


The Citizens’ Law Enforcement Academy is a four-week program designed to provide those who live and work in Culpeper County with first-hand information and hands-on experience so they gain a better understanding of how the Culpeper County Sheriff’s Office operates. The Academy is taught by Deputies and department personnel in their own areas of expertise. Four weekly sessions cover a range of topics, including patrol, dispatch, jail, courthouse, and special operations, investigations, active shooter and work place violence, and more. Students will tour the Culpeper County Sheriff’s Office, County Jail, County Courthouse, and Culpeper Joint 911 Center, and they will have the opportunity to visit the firing range and obtain a certificate of completion that demonstrates their competence with a handgun as required for a concealed carry permit. Applicants will have to pass a background check before being accepted into the Citizens’ Law Enforcement Academy. Classes will begin in January 2015 and will be held on Saturdays from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
