Advanced Section Mission Statement
The Advanced Training Section (ATS) provides post-academy training for corrections officers and probation and parole officers. Training is also provided for newly hired staff to help with their transition into the corrections career field. The ATS also trains outside agencies at their request as part of an on-going collaboration between local and state law enforcement and corrections agencies. The ATS is responsible for training and developing new and veteran instructors through the train-the-trainer program, a forty hour program that focuses on adult learning theory and evidence based practices in the classroom. The ATS is constantly evaluating its training programs and refining those programs to bring them in congruence with industry standards, to include implementing more reality based training and increasing active participation in the classroom.
