Weekly Meetings

Over this last week, The Indian River County Sheriff’s Office has been closely monitoring the evolving Coronavirus situation. Our commitment to the safety of our community members has led us to temporarily postpone all current and future events that the Indian River County Sheriff's Office is hosting.
This includes but not limited to: Neighborhood Watch Coordinators Meeting, (current) 59th Citizen's Academy, 60th Citizen's Academy that was scheduled to begin on 4/29/2020, and the R.A.D. Women's self defense course scheduled for 4/7/2020.
The Indian River County Sheriff's will post an update once it is determined that we will resume all events and activities.

The Citizen’s Academy is an eleven week program that provides the public with an overview of the criminal justice system. It offers the community a better understanding of how law enforcement and the public can work together to prevent crime and provide the best service possible.

The Citizen’s Academy is an educational and informative program that allows citizens the opportunity to learn about the issues that affect law enforcement efforts in Indian River County. The goal of the academy is to provide a greater perspective, respect and appreciation for the challenges and decisions law enforcement officers face daily in safeguarding our community.

Those who participate in our Citizen’s Academy will attend dynamic sessions with instruction by court judges, state attorneys, public defenders, as well as members from all divisions within the Indian River County Sheriff’s Office. Students will tour the courthouse, the jail, the 911 center and the Special Operations section. Some of the favorite sessions include a K-9 demonstration and a drug awareness video.
