The DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office has started hosting law enforcement training courses for deputies and for all other law enforcement officers around the county. The sheriff’s office is providing these trainings free to all participants to help keep costs low for all law enforcement agencies.
Hal Nash, a DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office Task Force agent, is the training coordinator. Nash has already brought several trainings to the DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office with many different agencies also taking advantage of them.
Sheriff Jimmy Harris commented: “We are providing these trainings at no cost and locally so agencies don’t have to send their officers out of town and spend a lot of money on training. It is critical for law enforcement to have these kinds of trainings not only to help them learn how to stay safe themselves but to learn how to protect the citizens of DeKalb County, too.”
