VALE — Malheur County Sheriff Brian Wolfe wants area residents to get to know his office and its people a little better.
That’s why the sheriff’s office will host its annual 10-week citizen’s academy next month.
Now in its eighth year, the academy is a good way to build a stronger link between the sheriff’s office and the public, said Wolfe.
“We get to know people of the community better as we spend a couple of hours each week with them. The other side of it is citizens get to know what we do and why we do it,” said Wolfe.
The academy begins 6:30 p.m. Monday, Nov. 20, and runs through Feb. 5. The academy will be held at the Malheur Education Service District, 363 A St. W.
