Several Livingston County Sheriff deputies have attended and completed training. On May 29 - 30 Deputy Terry Wilson attended training at the Midwest Counter-drug Training Center at Camp Dodge, Iowa. Training covered a variety of information on drug and money trafficking in vehicles, roadside investigations, hidden compartments, body language and interviewing skills.
Deputy Wilson reported this was an awesome class and looks forward to using this information and attending additional training. The course was free for the LCSO, Sheriff Steve Cox said in a press release.
May 25-27 Detective Ryan Ford attended the Leads On Line Leadership Conference in Nashville, Tenn. Training covered tools for investigations using online resources and how it can assist our agency with a variety of criminal investigations. The course fee was approximately $210 for the LCSO.
Detective Ford has already used these new skills to help solve the theft of a ring valued at over $20,000 and was able to identity where the ring went in another state. Charges are pending on the fugitive, Cox said.
