Buffalo, NY – Erie County Sheriff Timothy B. Howard announces the Erie County Sheriff’s Office is now accepting applications for the 2016 Fall Citizens’ Academy.

The Erie County Sheriff’s Office Citizens’ Academy has run three consecutive full academies and believes the 2016 Fall Citizens’ Academy to fill up as well. Citizens’ Academy applicants must be at least 21-years-old and be a resident of Erie County. Applications are currently being accepted with a deadline of August 31.

Sheriff Timothy Howard states, “I always thought this program was great and allowed the citizens of Erie County to get an up-close and personal look at the men and women of the sheriff’s office, but with recent events in our country, I believe the Citizens’ Academy is more important because the academy can help people understand what a Deputy goes through each day. That understanding can go a long way to building trust within the community and demonstrate that law enforcement officers are there to help the community.”

The fall session of the ECSO Citizens’ Academy begins September 14, and last nine weeks. Participants will tour both jail facilities, visit the firing range, go on a ride-along with the Marine Unit, and hear from the various unit commanders within the Erie County Sheriff’s Office.
