How would you like to join our team?
Let me take a moment to introduce myself and the fascinating and unpredictable world of Law enforcement to you. My name is Michael Coleburn and I served as a Deputy Sheriff with LA County and then later transferred to Riverside CA. Police and served until retirement. One of the reasons I was asked to teach this class in 1996 by the Sheriff of Island County was my extensive background as a Law Enforcement Trainer and my Educational Degrees.

My last assignment before retirement, I was assigned to Personal and Training, assigned to the Riverside Community College, stationed at the Riverside Sheriff’s Academy to develop and implement all the Reserve and Advanced officer training for the State of California. My class is academically and physically challenging. It is designed to develop and stretch you person and instill qualities that are desirable for the law enforcement candidate. Along with your High School credits you can receive 10 transferable college credits for the year. I give my best effort, I expect yours. Hope to see you in the class
