The Hernando County Sheriff’s Office will hold a Citizens Academy to teach the public about the role of the agency in the community on Thursdays between Sept. 4 and Oct. 16.
After graduation, individuals have the opportunity to observe firsthand the job a deputy performs on a daily basis by riding along on patrol.
Afternoon sessions take place 1-4 p.m. and evening sessions take place 6-9 p.m.
Applications are available on the HCSO web-site at http://www.hernando sheriff.org/applications /citizensacademy.
