Citizens Academy

At the conclusion of the Citizen’s Academy you will have an understanding of what law enforcement does and the knowledge to help you be an ambassador of the Greenwood County Sheriff’s Office. The program also provides you an opportunity to participate in some of the training that a recruit receives while attending the police academy and better qualify you for the efforts you are giving to our community.

During the program duration, classes are held on Tuesday evenings from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. The final session includes a ride-along with on-duty deputies.
