Two recently hired Corrections Deputies from the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office graduated from the six week corrections training course August 19th at the Oregon Public Safety Academy. Deputies Dominic Barbers and Simeon Elbrader successfully completed the course which brought them one step closer to obtaining their basic corrections certification. Deputy Elbrader also received an academic achievement award for obtaining the highest overall test score.
During the six week training course the deputies qualified with their assigned duty weapons, passed two physical fitness tests, passed five examinations covering course material, scenario training, and an unarmed self defense practical examination as some of the core requirements. The other part of the training required to obtain a basic certificate is the three month Field Training and Evaluation Program, completed at the Lincoln County Jail with Field Training Officers, supervising and assisting throughout the training.
The Lincoln County Sheriffs’ Office has built a partnership with the Oregon Coast Community College to help educate and promote the criminal justice profession. As a successful example of this partnership, three former interns from the Oregon Coast Community College Criminal Justice Program have recently been hired by the Lincoln County Sheriffs’ Office as Corrections Deputies. Deputies Sidney Rilatos, Mariah Colmenero, and Hannah Clevenger will all have a great example to follow when they attend the academy in the future.
