Jack Thorndike from Sirchie Labs instructing officers from around the State on how to accurately detect illegal substances with drug identification kits.
In 1989, the Police Officer Standards and Training Council (POST) ruled that any person employed or appointed as a peace officer shall complete 20 hours of training a year.
The City of Hiram Police Department requires certified officers to attend a minimum of 20 hours of training a year. The training is held as an in-service class, or the officer can attend the class through a State-approved academy.
For more information on training officers in Hiram, contact the Police Department at (770) 943-3087.
The Hiram Police Department would like to thank Sirchie and Jack Thorndike for helping us host our first training class on March 31st, 2011 in our new training facility!
We would also like to thank the officers who participated and made this event a success.
