At the beginning of 2019, we realized we had many deputies that were certified but had not been trained in the fundamentals of traffic stops or other patrol techniques. This was a huge liability risk for our county. We provided a structured fundamentals training program for each member who was assigned a patrol vehicle. This training provided the confidence needed to assist on calls as he or she would travel to and from work. This also provided more of a presence of deputies throughout the county which are seen by the public and in essence more deputies on patrol. Each one is now trained to respond to calls for service which has reduced call response times.
