Christian County Sheriff Tyler DeArmond announced Monday the creation of the 2020 Christian County Sheriff’s Office Citizen’s Sheriff Academy.

According to the release, the eight-hour program will be focused on educating the participants on the day-to-day job of a deputy sheriff in Christian County while having a little fun in the process.

The classes will be from 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesdays, beginning Nov. 17 through Dec. 8.

Applicants will be educated on the duties of the Sheriff’s Office, including traffic stops, equipment, law enforcement tactics, simulated court sessions, investigative techniques and more.

This series will be limited to 25 participants and will be free to Christian County residents.

“The goal of the citizen’s academy is to engage with the people we serve and increase their knowledge about what we do, and how we do it. We believe education comes from understanding,” DeArmond said.
