KCSO Detectives Undergo PATC Training
Eleven KCSO detectives are attending a Criminal Investigations School for New Detectives this week. The five-day Basic Criminal Investigation and New Detective Training School began on Monday and is instructed by the PATC (Public Agency Training Council.) This school is designed for new detectives and provides them with an excellent investigational foundation. Detectives will be learning about various investigational topics this week, including the crime scene, injury and death investigations, sex crimes, financial crime investigations, interrogations, and building an evidence-based prosecution.
The training is being held at the Knox County Sheriff’s Office Regional Training Facility and its students include 11 KCSO detectives, four detectives from other Tennessee agencies, and one detective from a Florida agency. The instructors include PATC’s Thomas G. Tittle, a retired Captain with the Marion County Sheriff’s Office in Florida and Brian J. Jarvis, a retired Chief of Police for the Town of Chester, New York.
Sheriff Jimmy “J.J.” Jones says, “It is an honor for our new detectives to have the opportunity to be instructed by the PATC and I know they will greatly benefit from the training that Captain Tittle and Chief Jarvis are providing. The instructors’ experience and credentials speak for themselves.”
