More classes are planned for the Putnam County Sheriff's Office Citizens Law Enforcement Academy, the law enforcement agency reported.

Three additional classes will be held this year in different areas of the county, according to the Sheriff's Office.

The program involves a 10-week class on Tuesdays from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. Participants meet with Sheriff Dean Kelly and deputies, view presentations on the agency's communications, patrol, investigations, communications and special services departments, and go on tours of the jail and communications center as well as “ride-a-longs” with officers.

Classes will be held at the Melrose Volunteer Fire Department from Feb. 12 through April 15, the Sheriff's Office substation in Crescent City from June 3 through Aug. 5, and the Sheriff's Office in Palatka from Sept. 2 through Oct. 28.

Applicants must be 18 or older with no felony convictions, pass a criminal background check and fill out an application available at the Sheriff's Office or www.pcso.us.
