Listed below are a majority of the specialty skills training training sessions for 2016


In the past year several instructors have indicated their desire to assist with Specialized Instruction but have not had the opportunity to assist.  We are in need of Instructors in multiple areas, but especially in these “skill” areas.

We refer to the "Special Skills" as the following areas of training:

    >Firearms Training
    >Driver Training
    >Defensive Tactics Training
    >Speed Measurement Training
    >Critical Incident Training-(CIT)
    >DUI / SFST training
    >Applied Patrol Tactics (APT)-BLE
    >Entry Level Jail Practicals (ELJ)-BJA

These Special Skills Training Coordinator Kenny Perry is in charge of coordinating all of the above skill areas at both the Basic and In-Service level, including Instructor level training.


We are posting the dates in advance with the hope that instructors will contact the academy indicating their desire to assist.  Prior coordination of Officers with their supervisors and training officers regarding the dates will hopefully result in increased availability. 


The dates may be “ranges” of dates, and may need to be adjusted slightly, for example they may include state holidays, but this will give you an idea when the courses are.

 
 If you are interested in helping, please see the Staff page of the website, and email the coordinator responsible for that program
