The Randolph County Sheriff’s Office is offering a Citizen Academy to Randolph County residents who are interested in learning more about law enforcement operations and the Randolph County Sheriff’s Office. Our next session starts on Tuesday March 6th.  

The basic goal of the Sheriff’s Citizen Academy is to improve law enforcement/community relations through a formalized educational process.

Our Academy will present a wide range of topical training subjects condensed from the standard training curriculum of sheriff’s deputies. By presenting this program, we hope to provide a broad educational experience which will acquaint attending citizens with the mission of sheriff’s personnel and the requirements of law to which deputies must conform while carrying out their prescribed duties.  

I believe attendance and participation in the Academy will yield the following positive results:

  • Citizens will be able to make more informed judgments about the Sheriff’s Office and law enforcement activities.
  • The Sheriff’s Office will become more aware of the feelings and concerns of the community, as expressed by attending citizens.
  • Citizens and Sheriff’s representatives will have an opportunity to discuss and debunk some of the traditional suspicions and misconceptions generally harbored by both citizens and sheriff’s deputies. Through open discussion of such suspicions and misconceptions, a more harmonious climate for relationships may be established.  

The Academy will consist of nine sessions meeting once a week, on Tuesday evenings, from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. Classroom sessions will be held at the Corporate Conference Center located on the campus of Randolph Community College in Asheboro. (CEIC building) ***There is no cost to attend Citizen's Academy.
