A local Maryland Sheriff’s office is offering its citizens a new law enforcement course which allows them to use a firearms training simulator, learn what it’s like working at a 911 dispatch center and much more.

The course is hosted by the Washington County Sheriff’s Office, and it is open to local residents, all of whom can get an inside look at a life inside law enforcement.

“The Sheriff’s Citizen Law Enforcement Awareness Program, we offer it to the community to come in and learn about what we do here at the sheriff’s office,” said Carly Hose of the Washington County Sheriff’s Office.

In addition to the previously mentioned exercises, citizens will learn emergency response techniques also known as C.E.R.T.

The Sheriff’s Citizen Law Enforcement Awareness Program is set to begin on March 11, 2014 and will run for 11 consecutive days on Tuesday evenings from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m., with two Saturday sessions of practical instruction.

Anyone interested in participating can contact the Washington County Sheriff’s Office at (301)-791-3020.
