CTA participants are given a realistic view of the Sheriff's Office. A wide variety of topics are discussed:
In addition, a field trip has been planned which will afford the CTA participants the opportunity to tour the Rowan County Justice Center, Detention Centers, and Courthouse. On the day of the field trip, the participants will be able to see first hand the inside of each facility and experience a little of the responsibilities of the employees of the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office. At the conclusion of the program, the graduates will have the option to participate in a ride-along with a patrol officer as well as volunteer with the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office in a civilian capacity.
