The Hanover County Sheriff’s Office will be hosting its 13th Senior Citizens Police Academy. The Senior Citizens Police Academy will take place from April 14, 2022 through June 16, 2022. The SCPA will be held every Thursday between the hours of 9 a.m. and 12 p.m. at Covenant Woods, 7090 Covenant Woods Drive (The Commons in the Lodge), Mechanicsville, VA 23111.
There will be no cost for the participants. Class size will be limited to the first 40 seniors who register.
The program will be available to seniors 55 years of age or older who are residents, business owners or county employees. Applicants must also be willing to submit to a background check.
This academy is designed to give participants an inside look into law enforcement with the Hanover County Sheriff’s Office. The presentations will consist of a variety of law enforcement topics as well as pro-active crime prevention presentations, which will give seniors a better understanding of what members of the Sheriff’s Office do on a daily basis. The goal of the academy is to develop productive relationships with the seniors in our community and for the seniors to develop a better understanding of law enforcement.
