Classes will be held every Thursday night from 6:30-9:00 PM at the Sheriff's Office HQ located at 231 South Main St., Carthage.

The Sheriff's Citizen's Academy was initiated in 2010 to give the citizens of Jasper County an inside look into the day to day operations of the Sheriff's Office and Jail. Participants will be introduced to the challenges faced by law enforcement and learn about why we do what we do. Participants will receive hands on training and will take the role of a Deputy Sheriff in training simulations.
