Notes Training sessions were offered 15 times to Sheriffs, with 22 of the Sheriffs attending all 15 sessions and all 64 Sheriffs attended at least the required 12 sessions. The Board also voted to allow credit for participation in the one hour Ethics training offered by the state. With the exception of the first session which was Sheriffs only, Chief Deputies and other deputies were allowed at training. Most training sessions had approximately 150 attendees. Sheriff attendance was monitored by a scanning device, sign in sheets, and visual observation. CLE credits were approved by the Supreme Court for attorney/sheriffs and other attorney's working in Sheriff Offices. Proof of attendance was submitted and approved by the Legislative Auditor.
