Four Hanceville Reserve Police Officers Graduate Academy

“The graduation of these officers is another big step forward in reaching this aim and serving the highest standards of public safety for the citizens of Hanceville.”

Four Hanceville reserve police officers have just completed extensive law enforcement training at the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Department Reserve Academy.

Those officers are:

★ Adam Burney
★ Jason Dickerson
★ Brad C. Jones
★ Kolby Smith

Their training began in March of 2016.

The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Department Reserve Academy curriculum is composed of the APOSTC 520 hours Minimum Standards.

These men received training under the guidance of members representing the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office. Also, agencies such as the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, the U.S. Attorney’s Office, the District Attorney’s Office and the Coroner’s Office provided expert instruction to these Hanceville Reserve Officers.

The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Department Reserve Academy has the primary focus of guiding reserve/auxiliary law enforcement officers with the knowledge, information, and experiences that will allow them to become professional and proficient law enforcement officers.

The graduation for Burney, Dickerson, Jones and Smith came with the award of certification as fully certified police officers.

The hard cost of participation in the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Department Reserve Academy was $1,750. This fee included training materials and instructor costs.

Their investment of time and energy was far more expensive than the financial considerations. Their schedule was grueling and relentless. Here is their calendar:

2016
March 9, 20
April 2, 3, 16, 17, 30
May 1, 14, 15
June 4, 5, 25, 26
July 9, 10, 23, 24
August 6,7, 20, 21
September 3, 4, 17, 18
October 1, 2, 15, 16, 22, 23
November 5, 6, 19, 20
December 3, 4, 17, 18

2017
January 7, 8, 21, 22
February 4, 5, 18, 19
March 4, 5, 18, 19
April 1, 2, 15, 16 (graduation)

Hanceville Chief of Police Bob Long is impressed and pleased with the commitment and effort these reserve officers put forth in accomplishing their graduation certificate:

“It has been a long road for these young officers. I had every confidence that through their commitment and dedication, each of these men would make it through the Academy and acquire their certification.

 

Each man is a professional, committed to the goal of being a skilled law enforcement officer. Their intentions are in exactly the right place. The City of Hanceville Police Department has the goal of being the finest ‘small city’ force in the state of Alabama. The graduation of these officers is another big step forward in reaching this aim and serving the highest standards of public safety for the citizens of Hanceville.”
