Have you ever wondered why Sheriff’s Deputies are always gathering at Convenience Stores? Or what the deputies are doing while they are sitting on the side of the road parked next to one another? Or how do the jails work? Or why traffic deputies always seem to be in a bad mood? For the answer to these and many other questions sign up for the Sheriff’s Citizens’ Academy.
The Sheriff’s Citizens’ Academy doesn't certify you as a deputy. What it does is inform you of how the Sheriff’s Office works and how your tax dollars are being spent. You will get to meet Sheriff’s Office employees and find out what it takes to be a Deputy or Corrections Officer from the selection process through training and working on a shift. It is a free 13 week course that meets on Tuesday nights from 6:45 PM to 10:00 PM.
The next class starts on February 21, 2012 so send in your application today. The class is open to anyone who is 21 or over, and lives or works in Travis County .
For additional qualifiers, questions, or to get your application contact Senior Deputy Vincente Galloway at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 854-4989.
