The training division is one of the most critical responsibilities of any law enforcement agency. The WCSO Training Division serves three broad purposes. First, well-trained deputies are generally prepared to act decisively and correctly in a wide range of situations. Second, effective training results in greater productivity and effectiveness. Finally, training fosters cooperation and unity of purpose.
Led by Lieutenant Nikki Shaver, the WCSO Training Division researches, coordinates, prepares, and provides necessary P.O.S.T. in-service continuing education training with our personnel. Additionally, the WCSO Training Division is one of only six agencies in the state approved by the Tennessee Corrections Institute to certify and provide annual in-service for their own employees.
