'Officer Involved Shootings': Citizen’s Academy Starts Soon

Posted: Updated:

PRESS RELEASE FROM THE SPOKANE COUNTY SHERIFF'S OFFICE: We've all seen the TV shows, the cop dramas, CSI (pick a city), Law and Order and going back to Perry Mason and beyond. Now here's your chance to see what "really" happens not what is portrayed by Hollywood. 

Come and join us for this spring's Citizens Academy: "Officer Involved Shootings". The Spokane County Sheriff's Office in cooperation with the Spokane Valley Police Department will host this spring's Citizen's Academy on Tuesday nights from 6:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. starting April 2nd and continuing through May 21st. 

There will also be an all day Saturday session on May 11th and most sessions will be held at the Spokane County Sheriff's Office Training Center located at 10319 E. Appleway Blvd. in Spokane Valley.  

You will hear from Deputies, Detectives, Psychologists, Forensics (your "CSI" investigators), Prosecutors and much more so you will know what happens during and after one of these traumatic events occurs. You will also have the opportunity to experience a lethal force training scenario!   

There is no cost to attend the Citizen's Academy but space is limited so you must apply and a background check is required.

>>>For more information or to apply, please contact Deputy Travis Pendell by email at tpendell@spokanesheriff.org or by phone at 509-477-6044.
