The West Hollywood Sheriff’s Department is hosting a WeHo Sheriffs Community Academy event at West Hollywood Aquatics Center and Recreation Center, located at 8750 El Tovar Place in West Hollywood. The class will meet for six consecutive weeks from October 12th through November 16th, 2022. The class is free and will be held on Wednesday evenings from 5:00pm to 8:00pm. The program will focus on the West Hollywood Station operational procedures.
Space is limited to 25 community members to participate in the first WeHo Sheriffs Community Academy. Community members will go on a ride-a-long, tour a custody facility and participate in role-playing exercises.
If you are interested in participating in this free class, email Deputy Eliel Teixeira at [email protected] or call 310-855-8850. The deadline to submit an application will be Monday, October 10, 2022.
The purpose of the WeHo Community Academy is to build a better understanding between the community and the Sheriff’s Department through education, communication and information. The event will explore the “how” and “why” on law enforcement.
Due to the limited classroom space, only the first 25 applicants will be accepted, and only those who qualify will be contacted. Applicants who are eligible but are not enrolled in this academy class will be placed on a list for future academies.
West Hollywood Sheriff Deputies will also host Coffee with a Cop at Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf at 8790 Sunset Boulevard on October 5, 2022, from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. The event is part of National Coffee with a Cop Day in the fall.
“Join West Hollywood Sheriff Deputies at Coffee Bean on Sunset Boulevard for National Coffee with a Cop Day,” reads a post the West Hollywood Sheriff’s Station’s social media platforms. “We Look forward to meeting the community members of West Hollywood. See you there!”
National Coffee with a Cop Day is October 5, 2022. Coffee with a Cop brings police officers and the community members they serve together – over coffee – to discuss issues and learn more about each other. No speeches. No agenda. Just casual conversations.
