The Training Division is responsible for all “in-house” training as well as scheduling external training for all sheriff’s office personnel, sworn and civilian. Personnel in this division are instructors, along with personnel in other divisions, and are certified in various areas of law enforcement. Training begins immediately after a deputy is hired and continues throughout their career. Not only are personnel provided basic law enforcement and detention training but they are provided advanced training in many areas including, but not limited to: domestic violence, criminal investigations, drug investigations, active attack response and first aid.  These advanced skills are received through a variety of instruction techniques such as online, classroom and scenario-based training.
