Registration for the Spring 2022 Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office Citizens Police Academy (CPA) is now open. Space is limited, and offered on a first-come, first-served basis.

Eight classroom sessions – one evening per week – will be held, in which participants will learn about the many services the Sheriff’s Office provides, including patrol operations, emergency management, criminal and cold case investigations, SWAT and forensic sciences.

Also during the program, participants will take a Saturday field trip for demonstrations by the SWAT Team and K-9 Unit, and to see a static display of the Sheriff’s Office’s special operations equipment.

The program is being offered at locations in both Northern and Southern Beaufort County.

The first class for those registered in the Northern Beaufort County CPA program is Feb. 1 from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Technical College of Lowcountry, 921 Ribaut Road in Beaufort, Building 23.

The first class for those registered in the Southern Beaufort County CPA program is Feb. 3 from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Technical College of the Lowcountry, New River Campus, 100 Community College Drive in Bluffton, Room 126.
