The Fauquier County Sheriff’s Office has begun accepting applications for its second annual “Citizens Academy.”

Starting Tuesday, June 2, the nine-week program will expose 20 citizens to the sheriff’s office “roles and responsibilities.”

The free academy will include classroom presentations and field demonstrations.

Units covered will include Civil Process/Court Security, Communications (911), Criminal Investigations, Corrections, Patrol Operations, School Resource officers, the Sheriff’s Emergency Response Team, Drones, Crime Scene Investigators, the Bike Unit, the Canine Unit and more.

Any county citizen age 18 or older may apply for one of the 20 academy slots, “with the expectation all meetings will be attended,” Sgt. James Hartman said.

“Applicants must pass a simple background check and be considered in good standing, with no criminal issues,” Sgt. Hartman added.

Completed applications must be mailed or delivered by May 1 to the Fauquier County Sheriff’s Office, Attention Lt. Rick MacWelch, 78 W. Lee St., Warrenton, Va. 20186. 
“Once the academy class of 20 is full, the enrollment process will be closed and all remaining students will be placed on a waiting list for the next academy,” Sgt. Hartman said. “If vacancies occur they will be filled in the order the applications were received.”
