ANTELOPE VALLEY – The Palmdale and Lancaster Sheriff’s Stations are in the process of selecting 50 interested residents from the station areas to participate in the Antelope Valley’s 27th Community Academy.
The program will take place from August 28 through November 13, 2012.
The program will focus on the Sheriff Department’s operational procedures as well as sessions ranging from criminal law to undercover operations. Participants will go on a ride-a-long, tour a custody facility and participate in a role-playing exercise.
The purpose of the Academy is to build a better understanding between the community and the Sheriff’s Department through education. The class meets for 11 weeks and it is absolutely free. Classes will be held on Tuesday evenings from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. at the AERO Institute, 38256 Sierra Highway Suite A, in Palmdale.
If you are interested in this free class, contact Deputy Robbie Royster of the Palmdale Sheriff’s Station at (661)272-2520 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Due to the limited class room space, only the first 50 applicants will be accepted; therefore you will be notified only if you are selected. Those applicants who are eligible but are not enrolled in the academy class will be placed on a list for possible future selection.
