Pittsboro, NC - Chatham County Sheriff’s Office and the International Academy of Public Safety announced on February 15 that they have successfully launched an on-line Academy for Ethical Leadership Development for the agency. The academy currently delivers over twenty (20) hours of comprehensive and SCORM certified “Ethics and Leadership” courses to sworn deputies and employees of the Sheriff’s Office with additional courses under development.

“We owe it to our officers and our citizens to have the trained and knowledgeable leaders at our agency. Ethical leadership is extremely important to me and so far over one-hundred (100) deputies have been trained in this new academy since October of last year. The program is taught by certified law enforcement instructors with both law enforcement and military expertise”, stated Sheriff Webster.

”We are a modern and proactive law enforcement agency recognizing that the utilization of technology to deliver training and manage compliance will not only elevate our employees but also lowers our training costs while delivering results with confidence.”

“The center is a cost-effective and fully interactive 24/7 SCORM certified secure educational and knowledge management portal enabling the Chatham County Sheriff’s Office to deliver ethics, leadership, and law enforcement courses, and manage its officer training records, track certifications, and automate it the training operations,” said Dr. Mitch Javidi, CEO and President of the International Academy of Public Safety, a NC based law enforcement training and knowledge management technology company.

“All current and future employees at the Chatham County Sheriff’s Office will be required to undertake not only the current courses we have available through the center, but also the new courses we will be adding in the coming month,” said Chief Deputy Gary Blankenship. “The center is a significant evolution for the Chatham County Sheriff’s Office. It is modernizing our training operations, allowing us to do more within the current tentative budget cycle.”
