Rowan County deputies earn certification

The Rowan County Sheriff’s Office announced the certifications of three deputies through various programs with the state department of justice.
Deputy Scott Flowers recently completed the school resource officer certificate program at the N.C. Justice Academy.
Flowers is the 122nd officer to receive the certificate since the program’s inception, a statement said.
He completed the program in mid-June. The school resource officer program is designed to recognize the achievement of law enforcement officials who’ve “dedicated themselves to making the schools safer for our citizens,” the release said.
The program requires the participants be sworn officers, be assigned to a school or been previously assigned to a school. The program requires 400 hours of training.
The N.C. Justice Academy is a division of North Carolina Department of Justice.
Officer Allen Amerson was awarded the advanced reserve deputy professional law enforcement certificate by the N.C. Sheriffs’ Education and Training Standards Commission. He also received the advanced reserve service award for 26.2 years of criminal justice service.
The purpose of the certificate is to recognize the level of competence of sheriff deputies serving in the state as well as foster increased interest in college education and professional law enforcement training.
Officer Oliver Greene was awarded the advanced deputy professional law enforcement certificate.
In order to qualify for the advanced reserve deputy certificate and the advanced deputy certificate, deputies must complete a combination of professional training and relevant education as well as meet minimum experience requirements.
The Commission was established in 1983 with the purpose to upgrade the capabilities, competence and proficiency of deputies through programs, standards and procedures involving employment, improvement and career development.
