Sandy Springs Police Chief Ken DeSimone has completed the Chief Executive Training Class for newly appointed chiefs of police and heads of law enforcement agencies.
The 60-hour course by the Georgia Association of Chiefs of Police is required by state law for all newly appointed heads of law enforcement agencies. It was held at the Dr. Curtis E. McClung Training Center in Duluth from Sept. 23-Oct. 2.
DeSimone was among 47 law enforcement administrators.
The curriculum is designed to give newly appointed law enforcement administrators and command staff personnel training on police management, and inform them of laws and policies affecting their departments.
"Georgia law enforcement agencies continue to provide the best level of service to the citizens they serve, even in these challenging times,” said GACP President David Lyons of the Garden City Police Department.
The GACP is the largest professional association for law enforcement administrators in Georgia, and one of the largest in the country. The membership of over 1,700 includes executives representing municipal and county law enforcement agencies, college and university police departments, corporate and private security firms and numerous state and federal agencies.
