LANCASTER – The Lancaster and Palmdale Sheriff’s Stations are in the process of selecting 50 residents from the station areas to participate in the Antelope Valley’s 38th Community Academy.
The purpose of the free Academy is to build a better understanding between the community and the Sheriff’s Department through education.
Classes will be held Tuesday evenings, from 6:30 to 9 p.m., for eight consecutive weeks starting March 20 at the Lancaster Sheriff’s Station, located at 501 West Lancaster Boulevard in Lancaster.
The program will focus on the Sheriff Department’s operational procedures, as well as sessions ranging from criminal law to undercover operations.
Participants will also go on a ride-a-long, tour a custody facility and participate in role-playing exercises. View a flyer promoting the Community Academy here.
Residents interested in participating in the 38th Community Academy, should visit the Lancaster or Palmdale Sheriff’s stations and pick up an application at the front counter.
