Annual Sheriff's Office Citizens' Academy - 2020 Registration Open

The Scott County Sheriff’s Office is accepting applications for the 2020 Citizens’ Academy.


“The Scott County Sheriff’s Office continuously strives to enhance the relationship between our Deputies and the community,” said Sheriff Luke Hennen. “The Citizens Academy allows our office a safe, fun, and interesting way to strengthen our partnership with the community by offering participants the ability to gain perspective on the many challenges faced by local law enforcement.”


Participants in the 2020 Citizens’ Academy will get an inside look at the work the Scott County Sheriff’s Office does. Participants will interact with Deputies as we explain the role of law enforcement in our communities. We will discuss topics ranging from SWAT, Patrol, Investigations, Court Security, Digital Forensics, Rec Safety, Civil Service, our Crime Analyst, Southwest Metro Drug Task Force, K9, and more!  Sessions will include a tour of the Jail and 911 Dispatch Center.


The Citizens’ Academy is a 6-week program that begins on Monday, February 3, 2020 (6:00 pm - 9:30 pm).  Applicants must be 16 years of age or older (participants ages 16 and 17 can attend but must be accompanied by a parent/guardian) and live, work or attend school in Scott County. Participants must agree to allow the Sheriff's Office to run a criminal background check to ensure the safety and security of participants, Sheriff's Office personnel and the public. A criminal record does not necessarily disqualify an applicant. Participants should plan to attend all or most of the sessions. Class size is limited.  Applications must be received by January 14, 2020.


For further information or to complete an application, please visit our website at www.co.scott.mn.us under Sheriff’s Office > Community > Community Programs > Sheriff’s Annual Citizens’ Academy (https://www.scottcountymn.gov/1563/14117/Annual-Sheriffs-Citizens-Academy) or contact Sgt. Bob Ryan at 952-496-8410 or rryan@co.scott.mn.us.
