The Cullman County Sheriff’s Citizens’ Academy returns Tuesday, Feb. 18.

The academy is an opportunity for Cullman County residents to learn about the role of law enforcement in their community. Classes for the nine-week program will be on Tuesdays from 6-9 p.m. There is no fee to attend, but class size is limited.

Participants will learn about various aspects of law enforcement, including ride alongs with deputies, firearms safety, a morning at the shooting range, a tour of the detention center, a SWAT team demonstration, along with classroom lectures from deputies and state and federal law enforcement agencies that work with the sheriff’s office.

For details or to request an application, email Deputy Bradley Williams at bwilliams@cullmansheriff.org. Applications can also be picked up at the sheriff’s office, located at 1910 Beech Avenue, S.E.
