About the Program

The Boerne Police Department and the Kendall County Sheriff's Office join forces to host the Citizen's Law Enforcement Academy.

The Citizen's Law Enforcement Academy introduces you to the officers who serve our community. You will see firsthand how we conduct business and why. This academy aims to enhance the positive relationship between our offices and our community through education and hands-on participation. It is designed to give you a better understanding of the mission and operations of our agencies and to enable you to gain an appreciation of the current challenges facing law enforcement. The class also offers an opportunity for comments and suggestions in helping to solve these challenges. Your valued input will allow us to continue to improve the services we provide.

Completion of the academy gives you as a Citizens Law Enforcement Academy alumni a unique opportunity to assist our local law enforcement agencies with many functions where civilian participation is needed and appreciated if you so desire.
