Citizens Sheriff’s Academy suspended until further notice due to pandemic restrictions.
The Chatham County Sheriff’s Office proudly offers a county-wide Citizens’ Academy. This 11–week informational series is designed to give residents an in-depth look at the daily operations of our agency. Our Sheriff’s Deputies have compiled a fun and educational set of hands-on demonstrations, live classroom instruction, and one-on-one learning experiences designed for students to develop a better understanding of the Sheriff’s Office operation. Community members, community leaders, neighborhood watch leaders, elected officials, or students pursuing a degree in criminal justice will find this course to be an excellent resource.
Acceptance of registration upon successful completion of background check.
