Each spring, the Roseburg Police Department, Douglas County Sheriff's Office and Umpqua Community College collaborate to present a Citizen Police Academy. This course is intended to provide the student with a better understanding of law enforcement in their community. The classes are all instructed by law enforcement professionals who have specific training and knowledge in their respective topics. This will be an interactive class and will provide the students the opportunity to ask questions and to participate in training activities.
These course is free to the public but the class size is limited to 30 students. Background checks will be run on all prospective students. College credit is available through UCC for this course.
Applications are now being accepted and classes usually fill up quickly. You can find the course application through the following link: http://www.dcso.com/documents/StudentApplication.pdf
