The NCSA provides a variety of training to sheriffs and sheriffs’ personnel all designed to help in the fight against crime and to increase the safety of the citizens of North Carolina.
Risk Management for North Carolina Sheriffs’ Offices
The North Carolina Sheriffs’ Association presents a three-day training program that focuses on integrating risk management techniques into specific sheriff’s office operations. This program is designed for supervisors and those soon to be promoted up the chain of command and applies to each division of the sheriff’s office including Jail and Detention, Patrol, Civil Process, Telecommunications, Court Security, Training, Administration and School Resource Officer operations. The program contains critical information about the value of the discipline known as risk management; the formalized process of identifying and evaluating risks, and developing strategies today to eliminate future problems.
Statewide Misdemeanant Confinement Program Training
The North Carolina Sheriffs’ Association conducts annual training on the Statewide Misdemeanant Confinement Program (SMCP). The annual training provides information to sheriffs’ office personnel on processing inmates into the program, out-of-jail medical care, reimbursement policies, and other related legal and procedural information. Sheriffs’ offices desiring to participate or continue participating as a “receiving” county in the program for the upcoming calendar year must send at least one representative to one of the annual training classes. Sheriffs may also invite judges, the Clerk of Court, and other court personnel to this training.
North Carolina Firearms Laws Training
The North Carolina Sheriffs’ Association conducts full-day training sessions devoted to federal and state firearms laws and how they apply to the sheriff’s responsibilities for the issuance of both pistol purchase and concealed handgun carry weapons permits.
Sex Offender Registration Training
The North Carolina Sheriffs’ Association conducts training sessions focused on the sheriff’s responsibilities under North Carolina’s Sex Offender and Public Protection Registration Program. This training session covers not only the laws applicable to the sex offender registry but also addresses best practices used by sheriffs’ offices when carrying out their mandates under this program. The one day training session on the sheriff’s responsibilities is designed to accommodate all experience levels.
