NEW HANOVER – The Sheriff’s Citizens Academy is in full-swing and has completed Week #2 of the 10-week program. Participants were presented an administrative overview of the New Hanover County Detention Facility by Captain L.J. MacNeish. After the lecture they were taken on an interactive tour of the facility, watched a demonstration from the Special Response Team and even had the opportunity to use a variety of non-lethel weapons.
