The Georgia Peace Officer Standards and Training Council (P.O.S.T.) requires all mandated officers to earn a minimum of 20 training hours each calendar year. With this in mind, the Dawson County Sheriff’s Office has developed a diversified training calendar that enables officers of our agency and outside agencies to fulfill P.O.S.T. requirements. The Regional Police Academies located in Athens and Dalton certified the Dawson County Sheriff’s Office as a regional training location for advanced law enforcement training in 2011. As a result of this recognition, our agency certified two additional personnel as instructors; the additional instructors allow our agency to increase training opportunities.
