Instructors for the academy will be comprised of San Joaquin County Sheriff's Deputies and civilian staff members. Class topics will include Internal Affairs, Community Oriented Policing, Patrol Procedures, Narcotics, Gangs, Hostage Negotiation, Domestic Violence, Crime Prevention, K-9, Swat, Traffic Enforcement and more.
