Marshall County Sheriff’s Citizen Academy

January 31, 2024 at 9:22 pm

The Marshall County Sheriff’s Office is proud to announce that we are accepting applications for the 2nd Session of the Sheriff’s Citizen Academy which will be held this spring.  The Citizen Academy will begin on March 5 and will be held every Tuesday evening from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at the Marshall County Sheriff’s Office.

The Sheriff’s Citizen Academy will provide attendees a look inside the Marshall County Sheriff's Office, which is the most multi-faceted law enforcement agency in our field.  Over ten weeks, citizens will be introduced to a large variety of topics throughout the several divisions of the Office.

The Citizen Academy is designed to give attendees a broad overview of the numerous functions entrusted by the Iowa Code to the Office of Sheriff.  While this training session is not designed to train citizens as a law enforcement officer, attendees will have a better understanding of what a career in law enforcement entails.

The Citizen Academy will be taught by command staff and deputies who have specialized expertise in the subject matter.  Attendees will be encouraged to ask question and express ideas to Instructors.

The schedule is as follows:

March 5 – Introduction, Training/Field Training Program/Patrol/Traffic Safety

March 12 – K9/Building Search

March 19 – Jail

March 26 – Courthouse/Dispatch

April 2 – SFST/Wet Lab
