Every Jefferson County Sheriff’s Academy instructor is 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 Basic Deputy Sheriff’s Academy is the only one of its kind in the State of Alabama. Our goal is to provide deputy sheriffs with the knowledge, information and experience that will allow them to become professional and proficient law enforcement officers. Academy applicants must be sponsored by a law enforcement agency within the state of Alabama. No private citizens.
