The Guilford County Sheriff's Office is still accepting applications for the spring session of the sheriff's annual Citizen's Academy, which begins this week.

All Guilford County residents who are interested in learning more about law enforcement operations and the internal processes of the Sheriff's Office are invited to participate. Classes will start Thursday, Feb. 7, at 6:30 p.m. The primary goal of the academy is to improve law enforcement/community relations through a formalized educational process.

"By presenting this program, we hope to provide a broad educational experience which will acquaint attending citizens with the mission of sheriff's personnel and the requirements of law to which officers must conform while carrying out their prescribed duties," a representative of the Sheriff's Office wrote in a press release.

Space is still available for citizens who can dedicate the commitment of time to attend Thursday evening classes and Saturday labs between Feb. 7 and academy graduation day on March 28. The academy will consist of two months of sessions that meet once a week, on Thursday evenings from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m., and four Saturday labs. Classes will cover a variety of topics.

Weekly classes will be held at the Guilford County Sheriff's Office, 400 W. Washington St., Greensboro, in the training classroom. Labs will be held at various locations.
