The Citizen's Academy is a 12 week program designed to provide Whatcom County residents firsthand information about how your sheriff’s office operates. As a Citizen Academy participant, you will become familiar with the Sheriff’s Office mission, values, and philosophy of policing.

We are offering a virtual Citizen's Academy in the spring of 2021. This will be held on Wednesday evenings, 6 pm - 9 pm, March 3 - May 19, 2021.
