Jeff Garretson - March 2, 2015 10:59 am

The Saline County Sheriff’s Office in a joint effort with the Salina Police Department is getting set to host the Advanced Citizen’s Academy training class this spring.

Sheriff Glen Kochanowski tell KSAL News that officials will be reviewing applications for the 8 week course that begins on the last day of March.

Graduation from a previous Citizen’s Academy is required to participate in the advance class.

Sheriff Kochanowski says participants will share a ride with a patrol officer, learn more about sobriety testing, focus on use of force issues and weapons training.

“It will give them a better understanding of how criminal justice works,” he said.

Sheriff Kochanowski added, “It will help citizens understand the how and the why things are being done.”

The advance course is open for 14 applicants and the class, which will meet once a week runs from March 31st to May 19th.

Those interested can apply online at www.salinesheriff.org or in person at the Saline County Sheriff’s Office located at 251 North 10th Street.

Focus on use of force? OK sheriff who are you going to kill this time and then have your friends investigate and cover it up. Gee maybe I should sign up and learn how they do it.
