SBSO's to host citizens police academy training

There’s no better way to learn about law enforcement than the St. Bernard Sheriff’s Citizens Police Academy, which is free, held in Chalmette and participants learn about what police work entails in their parish, Sheriff James Pohlmann said. “Our Sheriff’s Citizens Police Academy classes will answer a lot of the questions you may have about law enforcement here and why things are done the way they are,’’ Sheriff Pohlmann said. Graduates, he said, become “ambassadors for law enforcement because they have a vested interest in what happens in St. Bernard.’’ Call Capt. Charles Borchers at (504) 278-7628 to register. Classes begin Aug. 27 and will meet each Wednesday at 7 p.m. through graduation night on Oct. 29.
