As part of continuing education and training in the administration of law enforcement, Chief Lionel Doss of Central Georgia Technical College, recently attended the 2012 Annual Summer Training Conference sponsored by the Georgia Association of Chiefs of Police along with heads of law enforcement agencies from throughout the state. The Georgia Association of Chiefs of Police is responsible for the delivery of training to the chiefs of Georgia’s police departments and law enforcement agencies.

The Summer Training Conference was held at the Savannah International Trade & Convention Center from July 22 through July 25. This year’s conference covered a variety of topics such as: “Myths and Realities of the Police Use of Force,” “Community Policing and Preventing Violent Extremism,” and “The Current Threat Landscape.”

Chief Doss was among more than 495 heads of law enforcement agencies attending the 45th annual training conference. In addition to the Chiefs in attendance at the conference, a significant number of departmental command staff were also present to learn about training topics that will benefit their department and community. Director Stan York of the Sandersville Police Department, President of the Georgia Association of Chiefs of Police, encouraged the chiefs to “implement the valuable training provided at the conference and continue to strive and enhance the professional development of your valued staff.”
