Considering a career in Law Enforcement?  The  Louisa County Sheriff’s Office is in the planning stages for a Teen Law Enforcement Academy.  It will provide high school students with an opportunity to learn more about the Louisa County Sheriff’s Office, explore several different careers in law enforcement, understand core law enforcement functions, and participate in hands-on activities.

The Teen Law Enforcement Academy is for high school teens between the ages of 14-19 years of age.  Students of the Teen Law Enforcement Academy will have the opportunity to become familiar with the day to day operations of the Louisa County Sheriff’s Office, enabling them to gain a better understanding of the policies and laws that guide an officer’s decisions. Presentations will be made by law enforcement personnel on the sheriff’s office’s mission, ethics, hiring, laws, crime prevention efforts, Communications, Emergency Operations Center, Marine Patrol, K-9, Motor Units, Crisis Negotiations, Special Response Team, officer safety techniques and investigations.  

You won’t find a better way to learn about your Sheriff’s Office, and the dangerous and difficult jobs done by the men and women of the Louisa County Sheriff’s Office, than by attending our Teen Law Enforcement Academy!  Louisa County Sheriff’s Office will have this academy in the month of July, and will announce here and on social media (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Nextdoor, etc.) with dates and times.  Participants will be instructed as if they were going to become law enforcement officers, being taught law, patrol procedures, arrest procedures, crime scene investigations, firearms and many other law enforcement specialties.
