Recently Deputy Chris Mueller and Deputy Ryan Ford attended 8 hours of training in Jefferson City and was given by the Technical Response group of the National Domestic Communications Assistance Center. The training outlines the services NDCAC offer for law enforcement and the investigation abilities and challenged for Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, Instagram and others.
The POST approved training was free to our staff and will benefit a variety of criminal investigations for the LCSO and agencies we can assist.
Last week Sheriff Steve Cox attended the Missouri Sheriff’s Association Jail Administrator Conference. The high level training was offered to both jail administrators and sheriffs. The conference provided important training for both jail administrators and sheriffs regarding Critical Thinking, Importance of Research, Legal Updates, How to Fund a Jail, The New Generation, NCIC Code Updates, Excited Delirium, Quality Prescribing: Medical Treatment in Jails, A Jail is NOT a Health Spa: the Legal Basis for Correctional Healthcare, Withdrawal in Jails, Locked Up and Can’t Get High: Psychology of Addiction in Correctional Facilities, and A Diverse Population: Rights of Transgender Inmates, Records Management, Emergency Preparedness, and Senate Bill 5. Additionally there was excellent networking between sheriffs, jail administrators, and instructors throughout the conference.
Even though Livingston County’s jail is closed, by law the sheriff of each county has huge responsibilities for the detainees in his/her custody. Which means Lviingston County detainees in Daviess Dekalb County Regional Jail are still Livingston County detainees. It is very important for us to keep up with the laws, changes, and training on these issues. Sheriff Cox and the LCSO work very closely with the Daviess Dekalb County Jail and staff on matters involving the care and needs of our detainees.
Our goal is to provide the best possible care and ethical treatment for all our detainees while wisely using your tax dollars.
