Cass County Sheriff addresses his office’s bias training
"Our office also certifies and trains on less than lethal force options, use of force instruction and scenario based training."
CASS COUNTY, N.D. (KVRR) — The Cass County Sheriff’s office has released a statement regarding policing procedures.
Sheriff Jesse Jahner says questions among people throughout the community have risen in regards to the department’s bias training.
Jahner says he wants to be transparent and says the training includes anti bias, cultural awareness, de-escalation, diversity, communication, and crisis intervention.
“Training is an essential mission of the Cass County Sheriff’s office and most of our officers receive more than that 60 hour requirement. Our office also certifies and trains on less than lethal force options, use of force instruction and scenario based training. We have an adoptive community program where officers have communities that they work with regularly,” Jahner said.
The Cass County sheriff’s office encourages people to take part in an 11 week Citizen’s Academy Course where they can learn about agency resources, policy and procedures.
