The Citizens’ Law Enforcement Academy is a free ten week course that meets from 7 p.m. until 10:00 p.m. on consecutive Mondays.
The Academy is open to all Forsyth County residents, employees, and business owners.
The Academy provides students with hands-on training and law enforcement knowledge in a friendly environment.
The course is run by the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office and closely follows the actual hands-on training deputies undergo. All instructors in this program are Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office employees. Topics include Constitutional law, conducting traffic stops, judgmental use of force, K9 and S.W.A.T. demonstrations, ride-alongs with deputies and much more.
Our goal is to build a closer bond with the citizens and business owners of Forsyth County through communication and education.
