SCSO Citizens Academy

The Sumter County Sheriff’s Office Citizens Academy is a free, six-to-eight-week program that will give participants an inside look into local law enforcement.

An extension of our crime prevention and community outreach efforts, our goal with the citizens academy is to encourage a better understanding of law enforcement’s role in Sumter County. Members of the community can learn the foundations of basic law enforcement and experience some of the same hands-on training that our deputies are required to be proficient in.

Fill out this application and submit it to the sheriff's office by Thursday, Sept. 30. Applications can be submitted:
