ROCKINGHAM — Two Richmond County deputies recently graduated from South Piedmont Community College’s Law Enforcement Management Academy.
Lt. Lang Harrison and Detective Sgt. Rodney Tucker, of the Richmond County Sheriff’s Office, were two of the 20 graduates from the program. They graduated on Jan. 13.
Harrison is a supervisor in the Patrol Division and Tucker is an assistant supervisor with the Criminal Investigations Division.
Participants in the academy attend training three consecutive days per month August-January and sessions include media relations and communication, team building and leadership, officer-involved shootings, surviving a deadly encounter, and internal affairs.
“Congratulations and thank you to Lt. Harrison and Sgt. Tucker on their dedication to continue learning,” Sheriff Mark Gulledge said in a statement. “This academy helps in making them a better supervisor, which in turn, makes us a better agency as a whole.”
