Two sheriff’s officers earn advanced certification

Davie Sheriff J.D. Hartman believes in training.

That’s why he encourages his officers to seek the advanced certificate in law enforcement.

The certificate, he said, isn’t easy to obtain, and requires service, training and education. A small percentage of officers obtain the designation. “It takes a lot of time and effort.”

But at the Davie County Sheriff’s Office, 13 officers earned that certificate. The latest recognized by county commissioners last week include Steve Moxley (retired) and Terry Myers.
