Henderson County DA, sheriff offer free officer training course

More than 270 Henderson County peace officers recently received free training through a course offered by the Henderson County district attorney and sheriff’s offices.

District Attorney Scott McKee and Assistant District Attorney Justin Weiner presented the course to update peace officers on recent court decisions and changes to state and federal law that affect local law enforcement. The officers, representing 27 law enforcement agencies, received the training for free, which saved the agencies and taxpayers money, McKee said in a news release.

The Henderson County Sheriff’s Office sponsored the course to ensure officers received continuing-education credit through the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement Officer Standards and Education.
