A graduation ceremony for the twelve graduates of the second Camden County Sheriff’s Office Citizen’s Academy was held at 7 p.m. on Thursday, October 27, 2011 at the Board of Commissioners meeting room at the courthouse annex in Woodbine.
The academy commenced on September 8, 2011 when students were welcomed and given a brief history of the Camden County Sheriff’s Office and a broad overview of the responsibilities and functions of the Sheriff’s Office as it currently stands.
During the course of the academy the students were immersed as thoroughly in the Sheriff’s Office and its various operations as safety and time constraints permitted. In the ensuing classes the students were familiarized with the function and duties of the different divisions within the Office of the Sheriff including Administration, Support Services, Court Security, E-911, Corrections, Patrol, Investigations, Interdiction, Training, Warrants, Drug Enforcement and the all-volunteer Search & Rescue. The students were also introduced to just how much the Sheriff’s Office is a part of, and works cooperatively with, a larger network of local, regional and state public safety and public service agencies.
Sheriff Gregory said his goal is to promote understanding and cooperation between the Sheriff’s Office and the people we serve. “I want the citizens of Camden County to have a thorough understanding of how their Sheriff’s Office operates and to feel confident that we are providing them with the most professional yet cost effective service possible.”
The Camden County Sheriff’s Office is offering future academies in early 2012. Please check our website at www.camdensheriff.org or pick up an application at the Camden County Sheriff’s Office.
