LEBANON, Missouri- Sheriff David Millsap said that on Tuesday the Laclede County Sheriff’s Office, the Missouri Sheriff’s Association and Ozarks Technical College, hosted state wide training for Detention Officers.

“First time our detention staff has been provided training for several years,” Millsap said.

The training was free from the Missouri Sheriff’s Association, the sheriff said.

The MSA says the academy instructors are working or retired deputies, police officers, highway patrol troopers, federal law enforcement officers,  juvenile officers, judges, firefighters, attorneys and other professionals local to the communities where classes are held. They are licensed and regulated by the Peace Officers Standards and Training (POST) Program, a Division of the Missouri Department of Public Safety.
