Before we start the actual classes, we need all person(s) interested to print an application from the website or stop by the Sheriff's Office to pick one up. When you complete the application it will need to be taken to the Titus County Sheriff's Office and given to the dispatcher.
Remember, you will need to have your own hand gun with a minimum of 150 rounds of ammunition, but no more than 200 rounds.
When the actual date for the class is set to begin, the time period of the class will have a start time of 8:30 a.m. and will end the same day around 3:00 p.m. depending on how long your ammunition lasts and how much fun you are having. There will be ten ladies per class and you will be shooting in groups of five.
You will be instructed by certified firearms instructors and at the end of the day you will be required to break down and clean your firearm. If you need, we will teach you how to clean your firearm. All you need to bring is yourself, your weapon and ammunition. We will supply everything else including a gun cleaning kit, but you can bring your own if you wish.
We will stop receiving applications for this course on March 18, 2015 so if you are interested, please get your application filled out, turned in, ready to learn and have a good time doing it.

Citizens Sheriff's Academy
Spring is in the air and it's that time of year again for the Titus County Sheriff's Office to host their Citizens Sheriff's Academy. This year's academy will begin on March 10th and run through April 4th being held on Tuesday night of each of the four weeks from 6 pm to 9 pm at the Titus County Sheriff's Office. Saturday, April 4th is the firearms training and we will meet at TCSO at 8:30 am for classroom training followed by range time which should end around 3 pm.
This year's class is open to Titus County residents only and those interested may obtain an application at the bottom of this column or by picking it up at the Titus County Sheriff's Office located at 304 South Van Buren, Mount Pleasant, TX. Previous classes were an undisputed success and this year's class will be no less exciting and educational for our Citizen Supporters by giving them a glimpse at what our deputies and all law enforcement officers experience.
All applications must be submitted to TCSO by February 17, 2015. Class size is limited to 15 participants so apply early. Applicants will be notified of their acceptance to the class and will be notified of date changes or cancelations.
The Citizens Sheriff's Academy is open to all residents of Titus County and will be held separately from the upcoming Women's Firearms Safety Course.
We look forward to seeing you and are excited to share our experience.
