Sheriff’s Office Offering ‘Citizens Sheriff’s Academy Class’

The Hancock County Sheriff’s Office ‘Citizens Sheriff’s Academy Class’ will return this fall after being canceled last year due to the pandemic.

The Citizens Sheriff’s Academy Class will begin on September 9th and run for nine weeks on Thursday nights from 6:30 to 9.

Sheriff Michael Heldman says each class focuses on a different aspect of the sheriff’s office.



He says the classes inform the public about what the sheriff’s office does and how their tax dollars are spent.

The first class was in the fall of 2000 and the program has more than 280 alumni.

This year will be the 31st class.
