Citizens' Academy Alumni Association

The Richland County Sheriff's Departments Citizens' Academy Alumni Association, is a group of dedicated citizens who have completed the Citizens' Academy and now are an important part of service to the department. All Alumni Association members must have completed a Richland County Sheriff's Departments Citizens' Academy class (see Citizens' Academy link if you are interested).

The Alumni Association is a blend of citizens from all over Richland County who have a general passion for Law Enforcement, serving the Citizens of Richland County and contributing to the Richland County Sheriff's Department through service.

The Alumni Association meets once a month, hosting guest speakers related to Law Enforcement, and also uses that time to come together for service projects, fundraising opportunities and fellowship.
