Happy New Year from the Autauga County Sheriff's Office

It gives me great pleasure to announce that the Autauga County Sheriff's Office will be hosting another Citizens Academy!

The classes will be held two nights a week starting on Thursday, February 21, 2019 beginning at 6:00 pm at the Autauga County Sheriff's Office in the Squad Room. The remaining classes will be held on Tuesdays and Thursdays for the next four consecutive weeks, also beginning at 6:00pm with snacks provided.

The Academy is planned to inform the citizens on the operation of the Sheriff's Office and what Law Enforcement encounters on a day to day basics. There will also be information on the Court System.

The Autauga County citizens will get to learn about the history of the Sheriff and his administrative duties, along with information about the different divisions of the office including Patrol, Investigation, Dispatch, Narcotics, Crime Prevention, Jail Operations and much more. The Academy will provide some hands on classes as well. We will have a firearm simulator, Taser demonstration, and a jail tour. There are four dates set aside for participates in the Academy to do a Ride Along with a Deputy on Patrol, please look ahead and plan which weekend works best for you.

My staff and I are excited about the Academy and they have worked hard to make this happen. If you are a citizen of Autauga County, 21 years of age or older, and this is something you would like to do, please visit our website and under the Message from the Sheriff section download and fill out the application. If you need an application mailed to you, please contact the Sheriff's Office at 361-2503 to request one. Applications must be received by the Sheriff's Office by February 1, 2019. I am sorry, but due to limited space in our Squad Room, we can only take twenty (20) Autauga County Citizens in the Academy. We hope to host another Academy later in 2019 also.

Thank You for your Support!

Sheriff Joe Sedinger
