On Friday, 2/19/16 Deputy Jordan Jones graduated from the Dept. of Criminal Justice Training at Richmond, KY. He received nearly 900 hours of law enforcement training, ranging from legal training, firearms, driving, report writing, and investigations.
Jones trained at the academy for a total of 22 weeks, and during enrollment, he was allowed home only on Saturdays and Sundays.
"The overall experience was good," Deputy Jones said. "It's training every officer needs in order to do our jobs the best we can. I'm very grateful to be back home with my family and to serve the citizens of Edmonson County."
The Sheriff's Office now has six certified deputies, the most ever for an Edmonson County administration.
"We're very proud to have Deputy Jones back home in Edmonson County," Sheriff Doyle said. "He's an absolute asset to our county."
Deputy Jones previously served two tours in Afghanistan with the U.S. Army.
