Sheriff’s Department offers 10-week course on criminal justice

A “Citizens Academy” designed to demystify the criminal justice system and the workings of the District Attorney’s Office for members of the public will begin next month.

The 10-week course, presented free in conjunction with the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department, introduces citizens to the inner workings of the law enforcement system as administered by the District Attorney and Superior Court.

This is an amazing opportunity for people to meet prosecutors in the D.A.’s office and get an inside look at what we do,” said District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis. “This year’s course touches on several topics like juvenile justice and animal cruelty that directly relate to recent high-profile cases.”

A diverse group of speakers from the D.A.’s office and the Sheriff’s Department will discuss topics ranging from cold case homicide to prosecuting sexually violent predators during the once-a-week classes.

Prosecutors and deputies will also cover such subjects as narcotics, gangs, crime scene investigations, ballistics/firearms, witness protection, Internet crimes against children, sex crimes and stalking, domestic violence and prison reentry programs.

The Citizens Academy begins Sept. 9 and runs Tuesday or Wednesday nights through Nov. 12. To take part, contact the District Attorney’s Office at (619) 515-8294 by Sept. 2 to make a reservation.
