Law Enforcement Training (Continuing Education)
The Continuing Education Law Enforcement Training division at Sandhills Community College provides programs for current police, deputy sheriffs, detention officers, correctional officers, probation officers, and others affiliated directly with law enforcement.
Training ranges from generic, topic-based classes, which are suitable for all law enforcement personnel. These classes range from legal matters to communication and observation skills.
Training can also be very specific: Crisis Intervention Training (Mental Health Intervention Education), SWAT (tactical training), Drug Interdiction, Firearms, CRDT (control, restraints and defensive tactics), and ground fighting.
Much of the training is mandated as “in-service” by the North Carolina Department of Justice or the North Carolina Department of Correction.
