Training

The mission of the Training Division is to transform uniformed and civilian members of the Police Department into law enforcement professionals, equipped with the necessary academic and tactical knowledge to protect the life, rights, property, and dignity of all the residents of the County of York. 

We believe that a well-trained law enforcement professional will have a favorable impact on the communities they serve, will be respected by their peers, and will be emulated by other law enforcement agencies. We endeavor to facilitate training by utilizing technology, research and development, and meticulous instruction to ensure that members of the Sheriff's Office can continue to be lauded as York County's Finest.
