The two dozen St. Bernard Parish residents participating in the 21st session of the St. Bernard Sheriff’s Office Citizens Police Academy have already visited with several veteran deputies from patrol, communications, the equipment division, and criminal investigations.
Coordinated by Capt. Charles Borchers, Sgt. Eric Eilers and Dep. Aaron Johnson, the free, 10-week course, which began Aug. 21, teaches residents about the various aspects of law enforcement and what the men and women of the Sheriff’s Office do on a day-to-day basis to keep their community safe.
The class will wrap up Oct 23 with a graduation ceremony.
