The Rock County Sheriff's Office establishes a standard of excellence for law enforcement officers.
The Sheriff’s Office announced that Sergeant Aaron Burdick and Sergeant Troy Egger graduated from the School of Police Staff and Command at Northwestern University on November 22, 2013.
This is a 10-week course that focuses on leadership, human resources, employee relations, organizational behavior, applied statistics, planning and policy development, and budgeting and resource allocation. Students are required to present a staff study paper, as well as, complete written examinations and quizzes and develop projects and presentations as part of the curriculum. Sergeants Burdick and Egger will be awarded 6 units of undergraduate credit from Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois.
The Center for Public Safety at Northwestern University offers university-based education and training for the law enforcement community, including police training, management training and executive development.
At this time, most of the Sheriff's Office supervisors, and over half of the sergeants have completed some sort of leadership training.
