Citizens Academy To Begin In October

Get ready for Citizens Academy.

The fall session of the Collier County Sheriff’s Office's popular Citizens Academy kicks off Oct. 25 and runs every Monday through Nov. 29. The two-hour classes begin at 6 p.m.

Throughout the six-week course CCSO deputies will offer instruction and demonstration on matters ranging from SWAT to gangs and from human trafficking to traffic safety.

Citizens enrolled in the course also can take an active role and tour the CCSO Special Operations facility and spend the day at the gun range. Participants can also sign up for a ride-along with an on-duty deputy.

Classes are held at the Professional Development Center, 615 Third Ave. S., Naples.

Fill out an application and send it in soon. Seats are limited.
