The Spring 2022 Citizen’s Law Enforcement Academy will begin Tuesday March 8th, meeting every Tuesday night for 10 weeks from 6–9PM, ending the evening of May 10, 2022.
The 30-hour program is designed to provide attendees with information about the people, assignments, equipment, policies, law, and overall operation of the Onslow County Sheriff’s Office.
The goal is to ensure interested citizens possess a greater understanding of what is involved with policing in today's environment and we, in-turn, gain a better understanding of our community through positive contacts with the citizens.
All Onslow County Citizens 18 years of age and older are eligible to apply. A criminal background check covering the past 5 years is required and will be evaluated for acceptance into the Academy. The Sheriff’s Office will conduct the background check at no charge to the applicant.
Citizens with a current NC Concealed Handgun Permit are waived from the background check, when applying for a seat in the academy.
Seats are limited to the first 20 eligible applicants.
Please contact Captain Bruce Dixon at firstname.lastname@example.org or 910 989-4007 to obtain an application and further instructions to complete the applicant process.
