Citizens Law Enforcement Academy

The ECSO is pleased to offer a free seminar to adults who are interested in the daily operations of the Sheriff’s Office. There are 2 versions – 4 and 8 weeks in duration. The 8 weeks CLEA is presented 2 times a year with new classes starting on the last Thursdays in January and July. The 4 weeks CLEA classes are also twice a year and begin about 2 months after the end of the previous 8 weeks session. All CLEA classes meet on Thursdays from 5:00PM to 9:00PM at the administration building located at 1700 West Leonard Street.

Included is a variety of information and our instructors are all current professionals in their field of expertise. The schedule includes Patrol, Crime Scene, CrimeStoppers, Major Crimes, Training (including the shooting simulator), Mounted Unit, a K-9 demonstration, the Judicial Process, DUI, SWAT, Narcotics, Gangs, Dispatch, Domestic Security, History of the ECSO and more.

Free meals are served before each of the weeks of instruction. Cake is served at graduation of the 8 weeks CLEA. Dress is casual. Students are encouraged to ask questions as well as evaluate the classes so that we may continue to improve the CLEA.
