Training
Sheriffs' deputies perform the primary missions of Process Service, Courtroom Security, Prisoner Transport and Custody. Since 1984 all Sheriffs deputies are required by Pennsylvania Law to receive standardized training and education in the professional and lawful execution of their duties as Law Enforcement Officials. This training provides history of the Sheriff and the law, techniques of process service, security of Judges, courtrooms and staff, prisoner transportation, firearms qualification and safety, first aid and self defense. The training program takes place at Penn State University in State College, PA and requires 560 hours of training. The Pennsylvania Supreme Court has recognized the Deputy Sheriff Training Program as comparable to the Municipal Police Officers Education and Training Act 120. Most of our deputies are certified with both Act-120 and the Deputy Sheriff Training Program. As a professional law enforcement agency we continually train our personnel. Each deputy is required to receive 20 hours of training and education semiannually on various subjects in order to maintain their state certification.
