PALMDALE – The Palmdale and Lancaster Sheriff’s Stations are seeking 50 local residents to participate in the Antelope Valley’s 42th Community Academy.
The purpose of the free Academy is to build a better understanding between the community and the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department through education.
Classes will be held Tuesday evenings, from 6:30 to 9 p.m., for eight consecutive weeks starting April 19 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; and participants will go on a ride-a-long, tour a custody facility and participate in role-playing exercises.
Due to the limited classroom space, only the first 50 applicants will be accepted, and only those who qualify will be contacted. Applicants who are eligible but are not enrolled in this academy class will be placed on a list for future academies.
Residents interested in participating in the 42nd Community Academy, should visit the Lancaster or Palmdale Sheriff’s stations and pick up an application at the front counter. All applications must be turned in to either station lobby in person.
