Sheriff’s Office to Hold Citizens Police Academy in November


Sheriff Tim Luce has announced that the Seneca County Sheriff’s Office is holding its annual Citizens Police Academy in November. The purpose of the academy is to give citizens of Seneca County a better understanding of law enforcement and how the Sheriff’s Office works within the community.

The academy will consist of four Wednesday night sessions in November from 6:00 p.m. to approximately 9:00 p.m. Each session will focus on different aspects of the Sheriff’s Office and give an inside look at Administration, Road Patrol, Investigations, and Corrections. Classroom and hands-on activities will be conducted by the professionals who do the job.

Candidates who complete the program will be scheduled for an optional ride-a-long with a Deputy, and receive a certificate of completion and a T-shirt.

The dates for the academy are November 1st, 8th, 15th and 29th, 2023. Candidates must be able to attend all 4 sessions. Anyone interested can contact Ashley Denmark at 315-220-3403 or at [email protected].

Applicants must be at least 21 years old, be residents of Seneca County, and have a genuine interest in good citizenship. There are no physical requirements, only a desire to learn.

The academy class size will be limited to 10 people to maximize the experience and allow close-up demonstrations. Eligible applicants who do not make this academy will be considered for future academies.
