The Jackson County Office of the Sheriff created the Citizens Police Academy more than 20 years with the intent to provide citizens of Jackson County the opportunity to gain first-hand knowledge of police operations and standard procedures. It is a 10-week course that meets once a week for approximately two hours. Though the program is designed to give the public a working knowledge of local law enforcement personnel and policies, it is not intended for the sole purpose of instructing those looking to start a career in law enforcement. It also does not qualify any of the participants to work in law enforcement.
