MALHEUR COUNTY– The Malheur County Sheriff’s Office (MCSO) is reminding everyone of their annual Citizens Academy and extending an invitation for all who want to attend.  

According to the MCSO, “The Citizen’s Academy will begin on Monday January 3, 2022 and run for six weeks. The program meets once a week in the evening for two and a half hours. The Academy also has one optional Saturday “range day” available during the six weeks.

The Citizen’s Academy was developed by the Sheriff’s Office staff in order to develop partnerships within the community and to educate the public on the services and programs provided by your Malheur County Sheriff’s Office.

The Citizen’s Academy is a comprehensive program that allows participants an opportunity to see and learn about daily operations of all divisions of the Malheur County Sheriff’s Office first hand. Due to the large number of people interested in the program, and the amount of time and effort it takes to put on this course, we ask that applicants commit to attending the majority of the classes.
