Sheriff's department hosts quarterly meeting

TARBORO — Sheriff James L. Knight and the Edgecombe County Sheriff’s Office hosted the quarterly meeting of  the North Carolina Sheriffs’ Education and Training Standards Commission on Sept. 4-5.  The North Carolina Sheriffs’ Education and Training Standards Commission was established in September 1983 and has as its purpose to upgrade the capabilities, competence, and proficiency of sheriffs’ departmental personnel through programs, standards, and procedures involving employment, improvement, career development, and retention of the sheriffs’ office personnel.

The commission currently maintains certification files on over 25,000 deputy sheriffs, detention officers and telecommunicators throughout the state.

Knight was elected by his fellow sheriffs to serve as the Second District representative for the counties of Caswell, Edgecombe, Franklin, Granville, Halifax, Nash, Northampton, Person, Vance, and Warren.  He has served on the commission since March 2003, as well as serving on its Probable Cause Committee since June 2008.  The Probable Cause Committee makes initial determination as to whether or not an individual is qualified to hold certification under the commission.

District Court Judge John Harper swore in new members of the commission.
