LARGO - Sheriff Bob Gualtieri announced the launch of the Sheriff’s Teen Citizens Academy.

The free six-week, hands-on program is an opportunity for students ages 14 to 18 to learn close-up about the work of sheriff’s deputies and about a career in law enforcement.

Applications for the Academy will be accepted through June 1.

The program is scheduled on consecutive Saturday mornings (with the exception of the 4th of July weekend) from 8 a.m. to noon, June 14 to July 26. The Academy will be held at various Sheriff’s Office locations.

The Academy will provide students an opportunity to work with Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office deputies to practice defensive tactics, safe and effectively use a firearm, defensive driving, and taking a behind-the-scenes look at our operations including a tour of the Pinellas County Jail.

“In launching the Sheriff’s Teen Citizens Academy I hope to provide a free and fun avenue for interested students to learn first-hand how exciting and rewarding a career in law enforcement can be,” Gualtieri said.

Applicants must be enrolled in an education program and be willing to participate in a criminal history screening and background check. Individuals with a criminal history are not eligible for this program.

Applications are available at www.pcsoweb.com/operations/programs-and-services/pinellas-sheriffs-teen-citizens-academy.

For questions or additional information, call Ricky Butler at 727-582-5732.
