Being a good part of the city of Amarillo is knowing what is going on in your city. A great way to do that is to see the inner workings. The sheriff departments have for years been letting us be a part of things. The Citizens Academy has been a way to see the inner workings of our police departments.

It's always been a fun time when the citizens of our counties can learn from their sheriff's department. Each one of them is set up differently. Potter County has its academy once a week for an extended period of time.

Randall County Sheriff's office has done something different trying to make it easier for the citizens to attend. I am not even sure when this has started this way but I like it. They have a monthly citizen's academy. Which means just once a month is the commitment. Oh, and you can sign up for them each month.

So you don't have to go to each and every one. You can attend the ones that interest you. Though, they all seem like something cool to be a part of.

The class for April is coming up and it's about their dispatch. Which would be an interesting one to learn about. They have classes every month through December. So much to learn and sign up for every month when you have the time. They have so many more classes and again, it's just one Tuesday per month.

You know you have time for that. All you have to do is sign up and you will learn so much about the inner workings of the police in our area.
