From Michael A. Moore
Richmond, KY - Today, Gov. Andy Beshear and the Kentucky Department of Criminal Justice Training (DOCJT) announced that 26 law enforcement officers from agencies across the state have graduated the basic training academy.
Officer Holly Necessary with the Columbia Police Department was among those to complete basic training academy in class 530. Officer Necessary was hired in January of this year, before being sent for basic training.
Officer Adam Cravens, PIO, Columbia Police Department, says "We wish to congratulate Officer Necessary and look forward to her continued success."
"Congratulations to these 24 men and women who have dedicated themselves to 20 weeks of extensive basic training," said Gov. Beshear. "I ask the commonwealth to join me and First Lady Beshear in prayer for a safe and fulfilling career of service for these heroes."
DOCJT is committed to providing officers with best practices, the latest technology training and legal information to protect the diverse communities they serve. The graduates of Class 530 received 800 hours of recruit-level instruction over 20 weeks. Major training areas include patrol procedures, physical training, vehicle operations, defensive tactics, criminal law, traffic and DUI, firearms, criminal investigations, cultural awareness, bias related crimes and tactical responses to crisis situations.
"I am proud of your commitment to learning the skills and knowledge presented in the Basic Training Academy and wish you success in implementing this training in your home communities," said DOCJT Commissioner Nicolai Jilek. "You now carry with you the responsibility of serving with honor, integrity, fairness and transparency. Take this responsibility to heart and the people you protect will see how much you care."
DOCJT provides basic training for city and county police officers, sheriffs' deputies, university police, airport police throughout the state, only excluding Louisville Metro Police Department, Lexington Police Department, Bowling Green Police Department and the Kentucky State Police, which each have independent academies.
