St. Charles Parish residents can get a first-hand look at how the Sheriff’s Office fights crime by signing up for Sheriff Greg Champagne’s Citizens’ Academy.
The Academy, which is held once a week for 10 weeks, gives attendees insights about a wide range of crime prevention topics, as well as a detailed look at the techniques of a contemporary law enforcement agency.
Topics include information about how our officers solve cases, animal cruelty and dog-fighting, nternet safety, crime prevention for your family, as well as the office’s important, but less dramatic duties such as tax collection.
Attendees also will get an inside look at how patrol officers work and how our 911 center handles emergency calls, as well as the Nelson Coleman Correctional Center.
For consideration for the academy, you must be a parish resident or work in a business here, pass a background check and commit to attending all courses, which are held in the evening.
To apply for the next class, fill out the application form that can be found on our web site.
Just type “Citizens Academy” into the search box.
