Some of you may remember how I have talked about being a good citizen in the community and how Beloved and I took that class a couple years ago…

Anyways here’s good news for those of my dear internets that live in Montgomery County Texas, you now have the opportunity to join in this great experience of learning about our Sherriff’s Office, its Deputies and various departments. It is a once a week class for 14 weeks and you will be surprised by what you learn and the people you will meet. No, it won’t get you out of any tickets; duh we are learning how to be good citizens and support those that are employed to protect us. Okay so maybe not everyone will be able to complete the application process as there will be a background check for felonies and what not, so if you fit that “profile” you may want to abstain…Otherwise please check out the website and participate, be sure to tell Brice that I (Paige) sent you. Of course he won’t have a clue who that is, but trust me when I say it would be so funny for Shrek, I mean Brice to wonder who the H - E double hockey sticks Paige is.

Have no fear my dear internets that don’t reside in Montgomery County Texas, check with your county in your state to find out if they offer a similar citizen awareness class. If they don’t tell them they should and kindly direct them to the Montgomery County Citizens Academy website to learn more.

So what happens after you complete this 14 week class, well my dears you can become an Alumni where you can volunteer to do neat and fun stuff in the community-like doing Ride Alongs with a Deputy, being in parades, corralling folks at county events and other stuff. Some things include getting free tee shirts and who doesn’t need a free tee shirt. Rhetorical question no need to answer-unless you really have a new fresh sort of answer.

Did I mention there are some pictures on the site, wonder if I’m in any of ‘em?

FTC Disclaimer: I received no compensation for this post (not even a free tee-shirt)

Wow! Paige with w "Citizens Patrol" badge! You gotta get a hat too- What, no Texas Ranger training? (Only kidding)
We have a citizens watch crime group here, but I can't attend due to my night job.
Riding around with the deputy sounds like fun tho-
Do you carry pepper spray?
Good luck with those Bad Guys-

Sounds like a lot of fun Paige. Hubby is a policeman and he sometimes teaches those classes for his department. I've never thought of taking one of the classes before. Don't know why. Guess I should. I just might enjoy myself:)

That's neat and you even get a badge. It sounds like a good thing to do and a good class for all to take, that aren't felons of course. It sounds like you are also doing some of the jobs that our Explorer's are doing here. The Explorer's are kids who join the PD and do stuff like parking cars, watching goods at local festivals during the night and just helping our the PD with things that can be done by teens. It's a good program.

fruitted is my secret word for this.

Across the fruitted plains.

My Jim would soooooo love something like that, fancies himself a bit of a cop wannabe, and loves true crime kinds of stories. And of course is ever a model citizen.

No I didn't see you in any of the pix, not that I could tell. I did see Grannie with an AK-47, tho.

But you were already a good citizen! Actually, it sounds rather fun. I will be on the sidelines, throwing flower petals as you ride by on the parade floats. :-)

OT... Re: My "running" post. ,-) Re: Your suggestion of warm Jello. Never heard of such my Dear, but pharmacist husband said; "That might work!" :-)

As you said; "What have I got to lose?" That I'd not be "losing" anyway. ,-)

Eeeeek!!! ,-)
