Sheriff: Citizens Police Academy making return to Seneca County

Sheriff Tim Luce says the Citizens Police Academy is coming back in November.

It’s the fourth annual event, which is geared at giving residents a better understanding of law enforcement and how the Seneca County Sheriff’s Office works in the community.

The academy will consist of four Thursday night sessions starting November 5th from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.


Each session will focus on different aspects of the Sheriff’s Office and give an inside look at Administration, Road Patrol, Investigations and Corrections. Classroom and hands-on activities will be conducted by the professionals who do the job.

Candidates that complete the program will be scheduled for an optional ride-a-long with a Deputy, receive a certificate of completion and a T-shirt.

The dates for the academy are: November 5th, 12th, 19th, and December 3rd, 2020. Candidates must be able to attend all 4 sessions. Anyone interested can contact Danielle Thompson at 315-220-3403. Or email [email protected]


A light background check will be conducted. Applicants must be at least 21 years old, be residents of Seneca County and have a genuine interest in good citizenship. There are no physical requirements, only a desire to learn. The academy class size will be limited to 10 persons to maximize the experience and enable COVID 19 precautions. Eligible applicants that do not make this academy will be considered for future academies.
