The Robeson County Sheriff’s Office Citizens Academy has been established to build a better understanding between Law Enforcement and those we serve, through a series of classroom presentations and community involvement. The academy is open to all persons over the age of 18. To apply for the program, please scan the QR code above or click the buttons below to download and fill out the application and release authorization form. Applications and release forms can be emailed, mailed, or given in person to Lieutenant Ricky Williams for review using the contact information at the bottom of the page.

The curriculum and training are not what you might expect. What we are seeking is a culturally diverse group of people including bankers, businessmen and women, judges, housewives, school teachers, media representatives, retirees and citizens from all walks of life. Participants meet eight Tuesday afternoons at the Robeson County Sheriff’s Office training room in Lumberton from 3:00pm– 6:00pm and possibly a Saturday class off site. They learn about virtually every aspect of a deputy’s job including administration, patrol operations, traffic enforcement and communications, criminal law, SWAT and hostage negotiations, crime scene investigations, corrections and much more.
