Administrative Services Division
The El Paso County Sheriff’s Office Training Section strives to prepare deputies for service to the community through a comprehensive, cooperative, efficient and effective training program. This is accomplished using modern training methods, technology, equipment and sites. We operate a Colorado P.O.S.T. approved Basic Law Enforcement Academy, Non-Certified Academy and Reserve Academy, as well as providing annual in-service training to deputies and civilian personnel. These programs plus the additional advanced, specialized, and hosted training that the section has oversight of equates to an annual average commitment of 60,000+ man hours of training.
The El Paso County Sheriff's Office Volunteer Program is composed of a collective citizens group with a true and common desire to partner with the El Paso County Sheriff's Office by volunteering their services while learning more about the internal workings of the law enforcement community. As the population in El Paso County increases, so does the demand for service on the Sheriff's Office. The use of citizen volunteers assists the Sheriff's Office in the meeting of these demands and, as the demand continues to grow, so will the need for active citizen participation.
