Professional Development

The Office of Professional Development is composed of four units: Recruitment and Retention, Sex Offender Registry, Training, and Public Affairs.

The Recruitment and Retention Unit's responsibilities are exactly what it's name implies - to recruit, hire and retain the best law enforcement and civilian professionals in the Country.

The Training Division is responsible for maintaining all departmental training records, and basic training requirements.

Sheriff Leon Lott has created a model community policing agency emphasizing good relations with the media and the citizens of our County. Our Public Affairs Unit helps to maintain those relationships through traditional media as well as social media.
