Local & Statewide Training

The Georgia Sheriffs’ Association Training Academy strives to provide advanced, specialized and other quality in-service training opportunities specific to the Office of Sheriff.  No other academy has the experience or expertise to adequately provide training to address these unique mandates and responsibilities.

In addition to GSA training, sheriffs’ offices are encouraged to post their specialized training opportunities on our website.  Often other organizations provide training opportunities that are of interest to sheriffs, deputies and other staff.  These organizations are welcome to post training information on our web, upon approval of the training director.

It is the desire of this academy to promote training that will assist the sheriff and his staff in performing their duties with the highest level of professionalism.  To submit information regarding additional specialized trainings, please send to kslack@georgiasheriffs.org
