Some Camden County residents had a graduation on April 24.

Class 2014-01 of the Camden County Sheriff's Office Citizen's Academy graduated from the nine-session class.

During the classes, the students learned about and experienced first hand the function and duties of the different divisions within the Office. Students toured the Camden County Jail and the 911 Dispatch Center, performed mock traffic stops, interacted with the K-9s and their handlers, fired simulated and real ammunition, investigated a crime scene and conducted a mock trial with members of the District Attorney's office. Rides with on-duty patrol deputies were also available to the class.

Students were introduced to just how much the Sheriff's Office is a part of, and works cooperatively with, a larger network of local, regional and state public safety and public service agencies.

District Attorneu Jackie Johnson served as the guest speaker for the graduation.
