The Sheriff's Teen Citizens Academy is a 6-week program that allows Pinellas County teens the opportunity to take a behind-the-scenes look at the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office. The program is geared towards teens between the ages of 15 and 18 that have an interest in law enforcement, but not enough of an interest to commit to a long-term educational program or a law enforcement explorer program.

Attendees have the opportunity to learn the same Defensive Tactics we teach our deputies, be proficient with a Firearm, tour the Pinellas County Jail, and much more! The class is held on consecutive Saturday mornings from 9:00AM to 12:00PM with classes starting in February, June, and October. Applicants must be enrolled in an education program (including homeschool) and be willing to undergo a criminal history screening and background check.

The program covers the following areas of the agency:

  • Meet The Sheriff
  • K-9
  • Forensics
  • Use of Force Simulator
  • Firearms
  • Jail Tour
  • Vehicle Operations
