  • The Livingston County Sheriff’s Office and the Missouri Sheriffs Association Training Academy have joined together to bring a first-time opportunity to Chillicothe/Livingston County and surrounding area. This academy is a 10-month program that began August 7, 2014 and ends June 5, 2015. It focuses on all the fundamentals of law enforcement, including Constitutional law, firearm training, vehicle stops, emergency response, report writing, DWI, criminal and domestic violence investigations. The training also involves physical training and first responder training. Chief Deputy Michael Claypole is the local training coordinator and various employees of the Livingston County Sheriff’s Office, Missouri State Highway Patrol, Prosecuting Attorney Adam Warren, Missouri Sheriffs Training Academy, Carroll County Sheriffs Department, Chillicothe and Trenton police departments and others will be instructors during the academy. Upon completion of the academy, the students will have obtained a Class A Post Certification and are able to seek employment in the state of Missouri as a law enforcement officer. This 700-Hour Basic Law Enforcement Academy is funded from the tuition of students, grants and the Missouri Sheriff’s Academy. The instructors during this whole 10 months are working in their time off and as secondary employment to their full time jobs. The employment of the individuals is not an expense to Livingston County and other entities they are employed by. The Livingston County Sheriff’s Office and the Missouri Sheriff’s Association are both pleased and excited to offer this opportunity to area residents.
