The Chatham County Sheriff’s Office enrolled 34 of its employees recently for domestic violence training at the Pittsboro campus of Central Carolina Community College. Employees from patrol, investigations, narcotics, the I.C.E team, the civil team, and School Resource Officers were all represented at the annual conference titled Working Together to Keep Families Safe – A Focus on Prevention. While the conference had blocks of instruction for other professional organizations within Chatham County, the Chatham County officers attended a 4-hour block of training that focused on homicide prevention and was presented by Sgt. John Guard of the Pitt County Sheriff’s Office.

After the homicide prevention segment of the conference, Chatham County Assistant District Attorney’s Kayley Taber and Allen Baddour provided officers with a legislative update, instructing them of the 2004 changes in the domestic violence laws which included a felony strangulation law and changes to the habitual misdemeanor assault law.

The Chatham County Sheriff’s Office would like to extend its gratitude to the Coalition for Family Peace, Family Violence Rape Crisis, and the Chatham County Partnership for Children (Safe Start) for sponsoring the conference and would also like to thank the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the NC Coalition Against Domestic Violence for generous funding that made this critical training achievable.
