The Hoke County Sheriff's Office Training Division manages all in-service training required by the North Carolina Sheriff's Training and Standards Division. This includes Legal Updates, weapons qualifications, OSHA and hazardous materials training, driver training, and defensive tactics type training, to name a few. Each deputy goes through at least 50 hours of in-service training per year. The Training Division is also responsible for coordinating all specialized training for deputies, detention officers, and civilians.
Upon completion of the Basic Law Enforcement Training (BLET) program, deputies are then assigned a Field Training Officer for 420 hours of on-the-job training. Deputies receive additional training through local community colleges as well as the North Carolina Justice Academy.
The Training Division also serves as the sheriff's office's testing and evaluation of new law enforcement tools, equipment, and resources.
