CITIZENS POLICE ACADEMY
This involves weekly classes to residents of Franklin County over a period of six weeks. These classes are led by patrol deputies who are the people in our agency whom the community is most often in contact with.
Varied topics such as traffic law, criminal law, police canines and investigations are all covered. There is always lots of interaction between the attendees and those leading the classes, with lots of questions. Attendees also accompany deputies on patrol to get first hand insight into what it's like to patrol rural Franklin County.
It is wildly successful and we intend to continue
as long as the public wants us to.
