We would like to thank you in advance for inquiring about our Citizens Academy.  It is our belief that the citizens are the most valuable assets in our community.  Without your assistance, our tasks would be more difficult to complete.  The Citizens Academy includes members from all communities of Montgomery County.  The academy meets for six (6) consecutive weeks, but only one (1) night per week for one (1) hour.  The participants of the Citizens Academy are guaranteed to have fun while learning about the duties and obligations of the Sheriff's Office.  The six week program will probably be one of the most enjoyable times of your life.  While our ultimate goal is to make you aware of what is going on in your community, how to report suspicious activites/crimes as well as how things are handled from a law enforcement perspective, I can assure you fun will be had by all who are in attendance.  I look forward to meeting each and every one of you. 

We welcome any questions or comments and look forward to seeing and hearing from you......the citizens of Montgomery County! Thank you again for inquiring about the Citizens Academy! 


                                                           THANK YOU FOR YOUR CONTINUED SUPPORT

                                                                           Sheriff Derrick Cunningham
