Sheriff Ray Cross would like to thank each person that attended the 5th Annual Citizen’s Academy. This year’s class was a huge success with 28 citizens attending. The students experienced everything from what officers are taught in the Police Academy, to how our Jail operates on a daily basis. The feed-back from the participates was very positive, and many stated that they had no idea what our officers face every day. Sheriff Cross is looking forward to the next Citizen’s Academy, which will be announced at a later date. It is a 10 week academy, and the classes are every Tuesday evening from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Please make plans to join us for our 6th Annual DCSO Citizen’s Academy, and learn for yourself what law enforcement in Dade County is all about.
