The Jackson County Training Unit is responsible for submitting lesson plans to the State of Missouri for Continuing Law Enforcement Education (CLEE) approval. These lesson plans are normally the in-service training provided to all sworn members.
The State of Missouri requires 24 hours of training on 8 different topics. Of the 24 hours of training, 8 hours must come from outside the agency. The training unit provides approximately 350 hours of in-service training per year. After each service class, the attendance is submitted to the state for record. The Jackson County Training Unit ensures all state required training is met by all sworn members.
When the firing range isn't being utilized by the Sheriff's Office Training Unit, the Sheriff allows outside agencies to utilize the facility. The facility is used by over 13 agencies throughout the year, ranging from local municipalities to federal agencies. Most of these agencies qualify their sworn members and complete the state required firearms hours.
