Sheriff Bruce Riley personally invites the public to sign up for his upcoming 2016 Citizens Academy. The eleven-week Citizens Academy is open to any qualified and interested Linn County citizen. The Citizens Academy offers a unique and detailed look into the dynamic operations of the Linn County Sheriff’s Office.

Citizens Academy students are introduced to each division and specialty team, and receive classroom instruction and hands-on training in areas such as patrol, corrections, firearms, defensive tactics, traffic enforcement, narcotics investigations, swift water rescue and dive recovery, prisoner transport, and emergency vehicle operation.

The atmosphere at the Citizens Academy is fun and informative. Classes are taught by Sheriff’s Office team members.
