Training Division

The Training Division develops, schedules and presents law enforcement training for sworn officers and civilian employees. Our instructors are seasoned professionals and subject matter experts in their respective fields.

Annual training in the areas of firearms, defensive tactics, use of force, domestic violence and other topics are provided to the Deputies and Correction Deputies to improve their performance on the street, in the Detention Center and to better serve the citizens of Lee County.

The Training Division is under the direction of Major Jeff Pitts, Corporal Dakota Smith and Sergeant Shelia Threat. The Sheriff’s office has several in-house instructors assigned to other divisions that are called upon as needed.
