The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office is thrilled to announce the graduation of three of its deputies from the Highland K9 Training School for K9 Instructors. According to the Administrator and Training Coordinator for the Southeast Campus, Corey Archer, each deputy is now certified to train other Law Enforcement K9 Handlers in all aspect of detection, apprehension, obedience, behavior modification and tracking. These certifications will continue to keep the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office as a forerunner among Law Enforcement K9 Units.
Deputies certified for the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office were Deputy Megan Morgan (class valedictorian), Deputy Michael Steele and Deputy Joseph Wordell. These deputies will bring the tools they gained at this 12-week intensive training course and implement them within the Sheriff’s Office staff.
