Dear Friends,

I hope this email finds you well as we finally have signs of Spring.  I thought the below information about the Sheriff’s Citizens Academy and a fundraising walk to support Alzheimer’s Services/Hope Health might be of interest to you.  Please let me know if you have any questions.

Thank you for your friendship and support!


Sign up for Sheriff's Citizens Academy
Barnstable County Sheriff James M. Cummings is pleased to announce that the eighth annual Citizens Academy classes will begin on Monday, April 28th.  Classes will be held at the Sheriff's Youth Ranch at 1445 Osterville-West Barnstable Road. The 2-hour sessions will meet on consecutive Monday nights, starting at 6 PM, and run for seven weeks. Final class night will be June 9th.

Besides touring the correctional facility accredited by the American Correctional Association, academy attendees will see how K9 teams detect drugs; observe Sheriff's criminal investigators using today's technology to help solve crimes; visit the Emergency Communications Center, home of the county's regional emergency dispatch operation as well as a mobile van that can take and send messages from incident sites, and much more.

If you're interested, please go to the Sheriff's website to sign up:
