Sgt. Charles M. "Chuck" Kimbell of the Jonesboro Police Department attended the Chief Executive Training Class for newly-appointed heads of law enforcement agencies and command staff, and chiefs of police, at the Dr. Curtis McClung Training Center in Duluth recently.

The 60-hour course, administered and provided by the Georgia Association of Chiefs of Police (GACP) is required by state law for all newly-appointed heads of law enforcement agencies.

The curriculum is designed to give newly-appointed law enforcement administrators training on police management, as well as inform them of laws and policies affecting their departments.

"Georgia law enforcement agencies are continuing to provide the best level of service to the citizens they serve despite significant budget reductions," said GACP President Woodrow W. Blue, Jr. of the Milledgeville Police Department. "This program provides professional law enforcement training to assist chief executives in discussing innovative ways to address these concerns, while still [maintaining] high standards of excellence."

Kimbell was among 39 law enforcement administrative professionals attending the course.
