Logan County Sheriff receives certification

Bookmark and Share

Jim Bauman, Logan County Sheriff, recently achieved Certification for County Sheriffs. To complete the initial certification in the county sheriff’s program, Bauman took four courses for a total of 42 hours of instruction.

Jim Bauman, Logan County Sheriff, is congratulated by Ken McNair, Executive Director of the Oklahoma Sheriffs Association, after receiving his certificate for attaining Certification for County Sheriffs.

Bauman was honored at the County Sheriff’s Annual Conference held recently in Midwest City.

Oklahoma State University worked with the County Sheriff’s Association of Oklahoma to institute the voluntary certification program in 2001. Course work for sheriffs and their deputies includes County Budget Process, County Purchasing Procedures, Treasurer’s and Sheriff’s Tax Warrants, and Managing Personnel in an At-Will Organization.

Courses in the certification program are conducted through the County Training Program, part of the Oklahoma Cooperative Extension Service at Oklahoma State University. The County Training Program is mandated by state statute and is authorized under the Commission on County Government Personnel Education and Training.

County Sheriffs also receive CLEET credit for all of the courses in the Sheriff’s program.

Instructors from OSU teach the classes for county officers and deputies at various locations throughout the state, and at the Extension offices in Tulsa and Oklahoma City. In addition to sheriffs, the OSU staff also conducts dozens of classes each year for other county officer certification programs. Many of the courses, which are usually taught in a classroom setting for 20-40 people, are attended by representatives from each of the elective and some appointive departments in county government.

More information about educational training for county officers may be obtained by contacting the County Training Program on the Stillwater campus at 405-744-6160, or by visiting the website at http://www.agecon.okstate.edu/ctp.

Could it be just me or do some of the comments look like they are coming from brain dead individuals? 😛 And, if you are posting at additional online sites, I’d like to keep up with you.

    Hi! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble with hackers?

    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing months of hard
    work due to no back up. Do you have any solutions to protect against hackers?

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all is needed to get set up? I’m
    assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I’m not very internet smart so I’m not 100% positive. Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated. Kudos
