Eight law enforcement officials from Hamilton County attended the UT Law Enforcement Innovation Center’s (LEIC) STOP Domestic Violence course. This 32 hour course provides instruction for investigating domestic violence incidents.  The participants are better equipped to handle domestic violence situations as well as provide resources for victims. This training is a combination of classroom and practical exercises to provide the attendees with current law enforcement response skills in a variety of domestic violence and sexual assault areas.

Thirty Hamilton County employees attended the UT County Technical Assistant Service’s (CTAS) Internal Controls class. This class helps counties comply with T.C.A. 9-18-102(a), by giving them tools to decrease waste, fraud, and abuse throughout the county via effective internal control practices.
