The Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office plans to offer a 12-week citizens academy starting in late April.
The academy will cover topics including search and rescue, special operations, patrol operations, records management, major crimes investigations, crime analysis, property crime investigations and collision investigations.
The 31/2-hour classes are scheduled for Thursday nights, with optional Saturday sessions on driving an emergency vehicle and shooting at the target range.
There are about 25 spots available.

Webber mural to be rededicated
Snohomish County officials plan to rededicate a nine-panel mural by local artist Bernie Webber.
A reception is planned for 10:30 this morning at the county administration building, 3000 Rockefeller Ave., Everett.
Webber created the mural for the county government campus in 1991. The mural was temporarily removed when the campus was renovated.
“Bernie’s artwork is a cherished part of our county’s heritage,” County Executive Aaron Reardon said. “We are fortunate to have this opportunity to honor his legacy and to share Bernie’s work with the community.”
Webber, 83, died in December.
