How can I be sponsored to attend the Police Academy?

You must first independently apply to and complete the enrollment process with a California POST Certified Police Academy. Local Police Academies include Fresno City College and College of the Sequoias. Once you are enrolled and/or accepted into a police academy, you would be eligible to apply for Deputy Sheriff I — Recruit. Deputy Sheriff I — Recruit typically becomes available online a few weeks prior to your specific academy class start date. Once available, apply online to begin the hiring process with our agency. Upon successful completion of the hiring process, you will be a Fresno County Sheriff-Coroner’s Office-sponsored Police Academy cadet from that point forward.
