June 2010 - Sheriff Armentrout commended the staff for their performance during annual firearms re-qualification. He was very proud of the scores, particularly the shotgun scores since everyone scored 100%.

Of course the most memorable part of the training day was the Taser certification course. Although it was not mandatory to personally experience the effects of the Taser, most experts agree that it serves a useful purpose for a variety of reasons. The sheriff was proud that the entire staff was dedicated enough to subject themselves to such an extreme level of discomfort to maximize the benefits of the training course. Another "Job Well Done"!
