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 Twenty-Ninth Community Academy.
This 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 role-playing exercises. 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 eight weeks and is absolutely free.
Classes will be held, from September 3 through October 22, on Tuesday evenings from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m., at the Lancaster Sheriff Station, 501 West Lancaster Boulevard, Lancaster.
If you are interested in participating in this free class, go to the Lancaster or Palmdale Sheriff Station and obtain an application at the front counter.
If you have any questions, contact Deputy Jodi Wolfe of the Palmdale Sheriff’s Station at (661) 272-2520 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or Sgt. Theresa Dawson of the Lancaster Sheriff’s at (661) 948-8466 or by email at TADawson@lasd.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.
