Five Salisbury Police officers were recently awarded the advanced law enforcement certificate, which is the highest law enforcement certification offered by the North Carolina Criminal Justice Education and Training Standards Commission.
This award is offered to professional law enforcement officers across the state and is based on a culmination of years of experience, level of formal education, as well as specialized law enforcement training.
This achievement is not an easy one to attain and is a reflection of the commitment to excellence by these officers, said Police Chief Rory Collins.
The following officers received certifications:
• Lt. Jeffrey Wilkerson, patrol team commander
• Lt. Jason Robertson, patrol team commander
• Lt. Todd Sides, criminal investigations commander
Sergeant Adam Bouk, Patrol Team supervisor
Detective Aaron Safrit, Criminal Investigator
Collins said he’s very excited to see each of these officers receive the honor.
He said enabling and assisting with the professional development of the officers is a high priority for the police department.
Each officer brings “a great deal of experience, knowledge and skill to their position which enables them to be successful in protecting our community. I am confident that the citizens of our community will continue to benefit from the efforts and professionalism of these well-deserving officers,” Collins said.
