Registration for the fall program of the Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office’s Citizens Police Academy (CPA) is now open.

The first class is scheduled for Thursday, August 26, 2021 from 6:00 until 9:00 p.m. at the Beaufort-Jasper Academy for Career Excellence, 80 Lowcountry Drive, Ridgeland, South Carolina 29936.

An Informed Community is a Strong Community

During the eight-week program — one evening per week — CPA participants learn about the many services the Sheriff’s Office provides, including patrol operations, emergency management, criminal and cold case investigations, SWAT and  forensic sciences.

Also during the program, participants take a Saturday field trip for demonstrations by our SWAT Team and K-9 Unit, and to see a static display of the Sheriff’s Office’s special operations equipment.

In the upcoming fall program, participants from the spring 2020 CPA program, which was cut short due to COVID-19, will have the opportunity to attend the classes that were canceled. 

Apply Soon, Space is Limited

Space for the Fall CPA program is limited, please apply soon to reserve your seat.

Sheriff P.J. Tanner and the men and women of the Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office appreciate your partnership in the safety of our community.
