As a part of his continuing education and training in the administration of law enforcement, Chief Randy Ellison of the Swainsboro Police Department, recently attended the 2010 Annual Summer Training conference sponsored by the Georgia Association of Chiefs of Police. Heads of law enforcement agencies from throughout the state participated in the four-day conference. The Georgia Association of Chiefs of Police is responsible for the delivery of training to the chiefs of Georgia’s police departments and law enforcement agencies.
The Summer Training Conference was held at the Savannah International Trade & Convection Center from July 25 through July 28. This year’s conference covered a variety of topics such as: “Social Intelligence For Managers”, “Using Social Media In Law Enforcement”, “Making Dollars and Sense”, “Open Records Act”, “What Federal Partnerships Can Do For You”, “Team Prosecution of Gangs in Georgia”, “2010 Legal Update”, “Active Shooter Bridging The Gap”, and “1st Amendment Issues Regarding Social Networking.”
Chief Ellison was among more than 440 heads of law enforcement agencies attending the 43rd Annual Georgia Association of Chiefs of Police Summer Training Conference. In addition to the Chiefs attendance at the conference, a significant number of departmental command staff were also present to learn about training topics that will benefit their department and community. Chief Stacey L. Cotton of the Covington Police Department, President of the Georgia Association of Chiefs of Police, encouraged the chiefs to “continue providing exceptional service to the citizens they serve by participating in training programs which ultimately reduce liability.”
