Registration for Fall 2022 Citizens Police Academy (CPA) now open

Registration Open for Fall CPA Program

Registration for the Fall 2022 Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office Citizens Police Academy (CPA) is now open.

An Informed Community is a Strong Community

During the program, there are eight classroom sessions — one evening per week— where 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.

The Saturday field trip will be followed by a Thursday night graduation on October 20, 2022.
