Applications for the York County Sheriff’s Office Citizens’ Police Academy are now underway.

The eight-week class kicks off in early February and runs through late April.

York County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Trent Faris.

In a release Tuesday from the Sheriff’s Office, Fairs says the Citizens’ Police Academy will introduce participants to the various functions of the York County Sheriff’s Office and will feature instruction by staff from the different divisions of the Sheriff’s Office.

The goal of the Citizens’ Police Academy, in addition to providing an overview of the Sheriff’s Office, is to create meaningful partnerships with the citizens of York County and give the Sheriff’s Office the ability to better serve its citizens through the open exchange of knowledge and communication.

Classes will meet Mondays from 6:30-9:30 p.m. The class is open to any adult 18 years of age or older.

Applications are available online at any of the four sheriff’s district offices or online at www.yorkcountysheriff.com.
