Reserve Academy

Course Description:

NEXT CLASS -Session 24/ March 23, 2018

The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Department Reserve Academy curriculum is composed of the APOSTC 520 hours Minimum Standards.

All Jefferson County Sheriff’s Academy instructors are APOSTC certified. Our greatest assets are our instructors. Each instructor is currently active in a law enforcement (or related) profession. Most of our instructors are members of this department. However, we are also privileged to have the cooperation of many other agencies that provide us with instructors in areas of their expertise. The Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, the U.S. Attorney’s Office, the District Attorney’s Office and the Coroner’s Office are just a few of the agencies who provide us with expert instructors.

The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Department Reserve Academy’s goal is to reserve/auxiliary law enforcement officers with the knowledge, information and experiences that will allow them to become professional and proficient law enforcement officers.
