The Newton County Sheriff’s Office received training on innovative police strategies, community policing, hiring practices and problem oriented policing recently.
The eight-hour sessions was taught by Chief Harry P. Dolan (Ret.) with the Public Agency Training Council on Dec. 18.
Dolan is a 32-year police veteran who brings 25 years of public safety executive experience to his courses. He retired in October 2012 as Chief of Police of the Raleigh Police Department. He has lectured throughout the United States and has trained thousands of public safety professionals in the fields of Service Excellence, Leadership & Management, Communications Skills, and Community Policing.
Sheriff Ezell Brown, Chief Deputy Jerry Carter and all supervisory staff from the Newton County Sheriff’s Office were in attendance along with Sheriff Robert Markley and his supervisory staff from Morgan County Sheriff’s Office, according to a release by NCSO.
This type of training is vitally important to the growth of the law enforcement profession, for not only does it assist in promoting successful ideas within the law enforcement community, but also incorporates the community and their ideas.
