Macon County Sheriff's Department is currently taking applications for the third Citizens Academy course. The course, which is set to begin on Thursday, April 9, will be a 10-week educational program geared toward building community relations.
"Our academy gives citizens an opportunity to learn who they have serving at their Sheriff's Office and an insight as to what goes on in the MCSO and in their community," said Macon County Sheriff Robert Holland. "It also allows citizens to learn how they help us make our community even better. It also allows us an opportunity to hear from community members of how we can better serve them."
