The Citizens' Academy is a partnership between the Cache County Sheriff's Office and the four police departments that are in Cache County - Logan, North Park, Smithfield and USU. The Citizens' Academy is a great way to learn more about the many different tasks and duties that the five local law enforcement agencies in Cache Valley perform. The Citizens' Academy will cover topics such as SWAT, patrol, search and rescue, court security, investigations, jail operations, and other issues pertinent to the public safety in Cache County.


The 2015 Citizens' Academy has been cancelled.

We will possibly be having mini classes in the fall.

Please call (435) 755-1175 for questions.


The Citizens' Academy is an 8-course academy with a graduation dinner at the conclusion. We have one Academy per year beginning in March. If you are interested or have any questions, you can contact Erin Griffeth at (435) 755-1175 or email our Community Services Coordinator by clicking here.


Session #1 will be held at the Cache County Sheriff's Office at 1225 West Valley View (200 North), Logan, Utah. Subsequent sessions will be held at various other locations, including the 911 Center, First District Court, North Park Police Department, and the gun range.
