From Staff Reports
Ten jailers with the Webster County Sheriff’s Department completed a Detention Officer Certification Course the week of June 3-7 at the Webster County Career and Technology Center.
Adam Contreras, training coordinator with the Alfa Training Institute, taught the state-certified course. It included certification in defensive tactics, Tasering and use of OC (Oleoresin Capsicum). The course required that the jailers “take the hit” from a Taser and OC spray in order to be certified.
The jailers were tested June 7 on what they had learned through scenarios and a written report.
