Sheriff Landers would like to have approximately twelve citizens on the group from various areas around the County. “I am hoping for a very diverse representation of our County demographics who are not afraid to speak up and provide input.” said Sheriff Landers. Once the group is selected, the Sheriff’s Office will present a citizen academy to acclimate the participants on the daily operations of the Sheriff’s Office. Sheriff Landers stated, “It is important for the group to know and understand how and why we do things in order to provide productive feedback.”
The academy will start in November and take about twelve weeks to complete. The academy will require two to four hours of participation each week until completed. Following the academy, Sheriff Landers anticipates the group will meet at least quarterly or however frequent the group determines they should meet.
