The Yuba County Sheriff’s Department announced openings for their Citizen’s Academy according to their official facebook page –
Yuba County Sheriff Wendell Anderson announced a new program geared toward Yuba County citizens interested in learning more about the Sheriff’s Department.

Topics to be covered include Patrol Operations, Corrections, Dispatch, K-9, Search and Rescue, SWAT, and Crime Scene Investigation. The academy is for informational purposes only, and not an employment opportunity.
The program will start Wednesday, January 15, 2020, and be held every Wednesday night from 6 to 8:30 PM through April 1, 2020. Interested applicants must be 18 years old and complete an application, including a mini-background check. Please contact the Crime Prevention Unit at 530-749-5103 for more information.
Update 1/13/2020 – due to low enrollment for the January start date, we are postponing our Citizen Academy start date to April 22, 2020 and it will run on consecutive Wednesday nights through July 8, 2020. Please contact Crime Prevention Officer Rosa Leon at 530-749-5103 or email email@example.com to enroll.
