Tonight at 7 PM, Citizens will decide “Shoot Don’t Shoot”
Tuesday, October 18, 2011

RICHLAND COUNTY, SC - Richland County Sheriff Leon Lott states that for the last 15 years citizens have been provided the opportunity to attend the Citizen Police Academy Program. The Sheriff states that citizens give up one night each week for 13 weeks to receive an inside look at what law enforcement does everyday -- seeing the decisions, operations and programs of the Richland County Sheriff’s Department. The Sheriff added that parts of the program give the participants hands on experiences and place the participants into the shoes of being a deputy sheriff.

On October 18, 2011 the participants will be placed into scenarios, by the Department’s Training Division and Community Action Team, where they will have to make the same decisions that Deputies often make in their day to day responsibilities.

Sheriff Leon Lott invites the media to attend and speak to the participants and instructors as the scenarios play out with the students and deputies who will play the role of bad guys.

For more information about the Richland County Sheriff’s Department Citizen’s Police Academy Program and to enroll in an upcoming class please go to our website www.rcsd.net – the class is free.
