Public Safety Academy

The GCSO Public Safety Academy affords Gallatin County citizens an opportunity to experience law enforcement from the inside. For ten weeks, one night a week, you can learn from the best in law enforcement, crisis intervention, search and rescue, and emergency medical services. The academy will lead you through making traffic stops, field sobriety maneuvers, crime scene management and evidence collection, and hands-on CPR. You will be able to ride along with a GCSO deputy, sit beside a 911 dispatcher, and tour the Gallatin County Detention Center. You can try on the body armor worn by the Special Response Team, learn how undercover detectives track drug deals, climb inside an air ambulance, and watch a K9 stop a bad guy. This is a great introduction to how public safety works in your community!

The academy is free and open to any Gallatin County resident 18 years and older.  For more information or to register for the next academny, contact Captain Shane Frantz by phone at 582-2120 or by e-mail.
