    The Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department West Hollywood Station kicked of their Community Academy on Wednesday evening. A WeHo Sheriff’s vehicle was parked in from of the West Hollywood Aquatics and Recreation center on Wednesday, allowing the participants to explore its many features. The event will take place over six consecutive Wednesday evenings, from September 6 to October 18.

    The Community Academy curriculum offers West Hollywood residents an inside look at the operations of the West Hollywood Sheriff’s Station.

    Attendees will:

    • Gain a comprehensive view of patrol operations, which are the heart and soul of our station’s efforts in West Hollywood.
    • Deep dive into how our dedicated specialty teams address mental health challenges in our community.
    • Be introduced to specialized units that often operate behind the scenes, such as SWAT, K9 units, and more.

    Participants will experience firsthand what it’s like out in the field with an opportunity to go on a ride-along with one of our deputies.

    The Community Academy is also an opportunity to connect with the dedicated personnel of the West Hollywood Station and engage with fellow West Hollywood community members.

    Following its hiatus during the pandemic, the Community Academy resumed in 2022. Participants noted how much they learned about the various law enforcement practices that play a role in the city’s safety.

    “I signed up for this year’s Community Academy through the West Hollywood sheriff’s station, said West Hollywood resident and business owner Dimitri. “My personal objective was to get a better understanding about the processes and procedures of law enforcement how they work with the community get a better understanding of community policing, how we’re different here in West Hollywood versus some of the other either stations or police departments throughout the county.”

    Dimitri added that he hoped to get a better learning about some some of the changes that have happened over the course of the years, when the District Attorney gets involved, why we see a lot of the things on the streets happening today and where we can improve policing in the future and get more of the community involved.

    The community academy is a highly interactive experience, the Community Academy has limited spots. Those interested in signing up for a future session are encouraged to contact Sgt. Jason Duron by email at [email protected].

    I wish we, as a city, could make it a requirement of all council members that they spend one weekend – night shift – ride along with the sheriff’s department. We’d see how long they hold on to their defund the police mantra.

    Great Idea! I will not support any candidate that promotes defunding the Weho Sheriff’s department. Lauri Carleton was shot and killed in Lake Arrowhead for having a gay flag in front of her retail store. If people don’t think this could happen in West Hollywood they are fools. We are approaching an election year that will be filled with all kinds of hate and homophobia.

    I saw the cop car at Weho park and wondered what that was about. I thought it was a decoy to deter illegal activity. Now I know.
