Training Division is responsible for making sure all deputies receive proper training in order to comply
with state mandates and to maintain certification. Using specially trained officers, in-house training
is conducted in a variety of areas, including firearms, chemical agents, unarmed self defense, CPR,
first-aid, and fire safety. The Ross County Sheriff's Office has developed strong relationships with
support agencies in the community which has allowed us to receive training in specialized areas.
The Scioto-Paint Valley mental health Center and Adena Regional Medical Center have provided training
to the Corrections and Road Patrol divisions in dealing with people who suffer from mental problems
and other medical conditions.

To be an effective law
enforcement agency it is imperative that the Deputies are equipped with
computers in the cruisers and on-site at the Sheriff's Office. The IT
staff are continuing to work diligently to provide your deputies with
the technology to better serve the Citizens of Ross County.
Currently the Sheriff's Office is pursuing upgrades in technology for the
deputies in the field. This is including upgrading our old laptops to Mobile
Data Terminals or (MDT's) This will make it more efficient for the deputies
to take reports and to respond to call faster.
