This week’s Sheriff’s Corner I would like to take the opportunity to congratulate Deputy Jackie Erekson Jr. on graduating from the Nevada Peace Officers Standards and Training Academy. Deputy Erekson graduated November 8th. The graduation ceremony was held in Carson City, NV. at the POST Stewart Facility where the POST academy is conducted. Deputy Erekson went through an extensive training program for seventeen weeks. Training included physical fitness, emergency vehicle operation, laws and legal procedures, firearms training, patrol operations, defensive tactics, functions of a police officer and numerous other classes. Deputy Erekson will be assigned to work as a patrol deputy with the Sheriff Office. Once again, congratulations to Deputy Erekson on his accomplishment and we look forward to him representing White Pine County as a Deputy Sheriff.
