Citizens Academy

The Brevard County Sheriff’s Office Citizens Academy is a seven-week (eight session) program designed to give our citizens an inside look at the various aspects of the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office. This is a chance for our citizens to get a behind-the-scenes look at what the 1,500 proud men and women of the Sheriff’s Office do on a daily basis. Participants will experience an orientation similar to that of newly hired deputies, during which they will receive classroom style instruction from BCSO trainers.  Attendees will also have the opportunity to tour many of our BCSO facilities to include our jail complex, crime scene lab, aviation hangar, and many more.  Additionally, you will be given an opportunity to ride along with a Deputy for a few hours of a shift.

Citizens Academy is open to all residents of Brevard County who are at least 18 years old. We hope the experience will be informative, fun, and exciting!

The next class is August 3, 2023 through September 14, 2023 meeting on Thursday’s from 6:00pm to 7:45pm. This includes one Saturday class (August 26th) from 10:00am to 12:00pm.
