Sheriff’s Citizens Academy gives inside look

Video

Body

Brunswick County residents curious about how the Sheriff’s Office operates are getting a behind-the-scenes look.

The Sheriff’s Citizens Academy was in session last night. Eighteen students attend class once a week for 11 weeks to learn about the different departments that make up the agency.
They spent time in the classroom and then put to use what they learned as they played detectives at a mock crime scene. Graduates of the program helped simulate the scene.

"I have never really known that much about the Sheriff’s Department," Citizen’s Academy graduate Diane Mesaris said, "and I just thought this would be an excellent opportunity to find out exactly what it is that they do."

Graduation is in September and can lead to opportunities like volunteering at the Sheriff’s Office. The Citizens Academy is free for Brunswick County residents who pass a background check. You can find more information at http://www.brunswicksheriff.com.
