OCSO accepts applications for its Citizen’s Academy
Friday, December 30, 2011

ORANGEBURG, SC - Orangeburg County residents are being offered an opportunity to learn about law enforcement first-hand.

Sheriff Leroy Ravenell said a 10-week course called "The Citizen's Academy" will begin in February. The course is open to any resident of the county who would like to better understand the operations of the Sheriff's Office, he said.

The Citizen's Academy will be offered in two locations, at the Prince of Orange Mall and at the Fire Training Complex on Firefighter Lane.

"We are hoping this course will be extremely popular among citizens as we present the complicated role of how law enforcement works," Ravenell said. "Graduates will be armed with knowledge, not credentials to make an arrest, yet it promises to be an enlightening opportunity."

Applications are available on the Orangeburg County Sheriff's Office website under "opportunities," and can be submitted online. Completed applications can be faxed to 803-533-5833 or mailed to the Orangeburg County Sheriff's Office, Attn: Deputy M. Rice, P.O. Drawer 9000, Orangeburg, SC 29115-9000.
