Becoming A Deputy
The Basic Training Section works to ensure that the Sheriff’s Department crafts deputies who have the skills and knowledge necessary for today’s professional law enforcement officer. To accomplish this, the Basic Academy’s training program subjects our cadets, over several months, to a series of rigorous mental, physical, academic and emotional challenges. These challenges combine with a Sheriff’s Cadet’s life experiences in the private sector, academia, or military and create a deputy who is not only a professional law enforcement officer but one who is a part of the community.
The Basic Training Section’s goal is to imbue the cadet with the ethos that, no matter where they come from, they are part of, and not apart from, the community they serve
