The Citizens Sheriff Academy (CSA) of Delaware County, Ohio, is designed to strengthen community relationships through education, shadowing, and hands-on learning. Upon graduation, participants can choose to serve as volunteers at various Sheriff’s Office community events on an as-needed basis (i.e.: Delaware County Fair Sheriff’s educational efforts; safety mock drills, etc.).


The 11-week-long program is offered annually in the fall and is open to Delaware County residents. Applicants must pass a local background check. All sessions are taught by law enforcement professionals. The weekly sessions are held on Tuesdays, 6-9pm. Locations vary, and they include: the jail, dispatch center, Patrol south sub-station, and more. Upon acceptance into the program, you will receive the class syllabus, which includes all session topics, locations, dates, etc.
