HAMLET — Road sergeants David Ferron and Robert Carlisle Jr. of the Hamlet Police Department have earned intermediate law-enforcement certificates from the N.C. Criminal Justice Education and Training Standards Commission.
“The more training they have, the better they’re suited to do their jobs,” police Capt. Marc Terry said Monday. Plus, he said, “it just makes the department so much better (when you) end up with a more well-rounded officer.”
The commission certifies police officers as passing basic, intermediate and advanced training in such techniques as witness interviews and handling traffic accidents. Qualifying for an “intermediate” certificate requires a combination of education and length of service.
