The Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office has celebrated the graduation of a group of 15 teens who became the first graduating class of the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office Teens Citizens Academy.

The Sheriff’s Teen Citizens Academy is a free six-week, hands on program which offers students ages 14 to 18 years an opportunity to learn close-up about the work of sheriff’s deputies and about a career in law enforcement.

The program was held on consecutive Saturday mornings beginning June 14 to July 26 (with the exception of the 4th of July weekend). The Academy offered the students the opportunity to work with deputies, practice defensive tactics, learn safe and effective use of a firearm and defensive driving techniques, and take a behind-the-scenes look at the Sheriff’s Office operations including a tour of the Pinellas County Jail.
