The El Dorado County
Sheriff's Office Citizen's Academy is one of the most valuable programs that is
offered to this community. This Academy
will familiarize El Dorado County residents with the many aspects of law
enforcement and the role that the Sheriff’s Office plays within the community. It puts the participants behind the scenes,
and gives them hands-on experiences that engage and educate. This program has
been very well received and enjoyed by all who have participated in the past.
The Sheriff’s Office has
instituted the concepts of Community Oriented Policing and Problem Solving
(COPPS). The goal of the COPPS program is to open a positive line of
communication with our citizens and to involve the community in some of the
decisions regarding law enforcement.
very popular and unforgettable program runs 14 consecutive weeks, twice a year,
and covers many diverse topics. The
weekly classroom setting builds momentum and becomes more intriguing as the
participants meet the various instructors and eventually end with an
opportunity to play the role of these everyday heroes. A bonus of this program includes an
opportunity to take a ride-a-long with a Deputy and an in depth tour of both
the Sheriff’s Office and the Placerville Correctional facility.
The Citizens Academy is limited
to 30 participants per each Spring/Fall session and is free of charge to El
