PBSO offers Citizens Police Academy | TRNA

PBSO District 14 in Lake Worth is making plans now to hold another Citizens Police Academy in January. The Academy is Free and involves meeting once a week for 9 weeks for a three hour session at the Lake Worth District 14 station to hear speakers from different departments within the Sheriff's Office organization. There are also field trips to the aviation unit to view the PBSO helicopters, the Communication dispatch location and a field trip to the gun club jail.
Last year 22 residents, including yours truly, took the classes and they were very interesting, informative and fun. This is a rare opportunity to look behind the shield and learn what really makes PBSO operate. Classes are held after 5pm and food and beverages are provided.
No date for the next Citizens' Police Academy has been set. This is just to let everyone know and get an idea of how many people would like to participate. If you think you might be interested and have questions please contact:
Deputy Sergeant Lozano at 436-1350 or
Deputy Sergeant Kovalski at 662-2320
If you'd like to get a citizens viewpoint from someone who has taken the classes, please email me, Ryan Anderson I'll tell you it was a surprising and hugely informative experience that I highly recommend.
