In this Sheriff’s Corner I would like to take the opportunity to congratulate Deputy Paul Bath and Deputy George Head on their recent graduation from Peace Officers Standards and Training Category III Academy.

Both Deputies attended the academy located at Ely State Prison and graduated August 10, 2018. They received 240 hours of training which included classes on Nevada laws, firearms training, active shooter training, less lethal weapons training, blood borne pathogens training, C.P.R. inmate management, and many other training classes that taught them their roles as deputies for the Sheriff’s Office.

Deputy Bath and Deputy Head will be assigned to work in the Jail Division at the Sheriff’s Office where they will be responsible for intake and care and custody in inmates.

The Sheriff Office would also like to congratulate the other Correctional Officers that graduated with Deputy Bath and Deputy Head that will work at Ely State Prison. I appreciate our working relationship with Ely State Prison and would like to thank their staff for allowing the Sheriff’s Office to utilize their training facility to help us achieve our training goals.
