A group of 14 community members from La Crescenta and La Cañada Flintridge recently completed a six-week Community Academy class at Crescenta Valley Sheriff’s Station. The purpose of the community academy was to build a better understanding between the community and the Sheriff’s Dept. through education and understanding.
The program focused on the Sheriff Dept.’s operational procedures. Sessions ranged from criminal law to search and rescue operations. Participants went on ride-a-longs and saw the deputies in action. They went on a tour of Men’s Central Jail in downtown Los Angeles and also toured the Sheriff’s Communication Center in East Los Angeles.
The community members volunteered their time to learn about the local sheriff’s station and, most importantly, learned of the duties performed by local deputies.
Participants received certificates at the completion of the Crescenta Valley Sheriff Station’s Community Academy Class.
