FRANKLIN COUNTY SHERIFF’S OFFICE BEGINS CITIZEN’S ACADEMY
Our 2018 Citizen’s Academy Class started last week at the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office. Training Sgt. Darryl King said he was very excited for this class and how much they will get to see and do. Picture shows a portion of this year’s class as they were on break. This first night of instruction included: the duties of a deputy sheriff; the districts the deputies cover; and a look into the state mandated training each deputy must complete.
