Stockton among graduates from DOCJT basic training
From Michael A. Moore
Richmond, KY - On Thursday, October 27, 2022, Gov. Andy Beshear announced that 26 law enforcement officers from agencies across the state have graduated the Kentucky Department of Criminal Justice Training's (DOCJT) basic training academy. Among the graduates was Seth J. Stockton with the Burkesville Police Department.
These law enforcement officers will now serve and protect the commonwealth to create safer communities.
"Congratulations on achieving the first step in your law enforcement career by completing the critical training necessary to perform your duties safely and effectively," said Gov. Beshear. "Your influence on the security and wellbeing of Kentucky families is immense, and Brittainy and I are grateful for what you do to protect us all."
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 532 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.
The everchanging nature of public safety and protection requires DOCJT to remain on the cutting edge of law enforcement training practices. This includes providing officers and recruits with latest technology training and legal information available to protect the diverse communities they serve. Advancements in training, facilities and instruction are made often, allowing DOCJT trainers and trainees to have the most possible resources at their disposal.
Today's 26 graduating law enforcement officers are now ready to wear the badge of honor along with the other 950 Kentuckians who have completed their basic training since December 2019. They will work together to create a commonwealth that is safer for all Kentuckians now and into the future.
"I am proud of your commitment to learning the skills and knowledge presented in the Basic Training Academy," DOCJT Commissioner Nicolai Jilek said. "I wish you success in implementing this training in your home communities."
The Beshear-Coleman Administration is proud to welcome the 26 new law enforcement officers into the partnership of public safety. Along with all those currently serving in law enforcement, graduates will play key roles in the ongoing effort of making each of Kentucky's communities safer.
Class 532 graduates and their agencies are:
