A 12 week course that will provide a law enforcement education for average citizens is just weeks away and few spots remain. The opportunity is one that Sheriff Vance Norton is passionate about and has been part of his goals as Sheriff. “We feel it is important for citizens to be able to understand the variety of situations that law enforcement officers encounter and the kinds of calls that officers deal with each day,” shares the Sheriff’s Office. “It gives the citizens a better perspective on law enforcement as a profession.” Just a few openings remain and any who are interested are urged to contact the Uintah County Sheriff’s Office. Upon completion, some of those in the Citizens Academy will be used to form a citizens review board, which is also among Sheriff Norton’s goals.
