Missouri Sheriffs' Association (MSA) held summer training conference in Springfield, MO for nearly all Missouri Sheriffs July 29 through August 02.
Training topics covered at least the following:
Use of Force in Jails.
Impact of Legalized Marijuana by a Colorado Sheriff.
Critical Incidents and Media Issues.
Below 100 (training for reducing national number of Law Enforcement Officers Killed per year).

Overall this was excellent training and information useful to our area and office.
