BENTON, AR – Forty-four law enforcement officers from around the State of Arkansas graduated form the University of Arkansas System Criminal Justice Institute’s (CJI) School of Law Enforcement Supervision (SLES) on Friday, May 24th. This four-month program draws upon the education and experience of a cadre of instructors who are, or were, high-ranking law enforcement officials in order to teach subjects such as ethics, budgeting, communication, stress management and legal issues. Completion of the program earns the recipient nine college credit hours.
Saline County Sheriff’s Office (SCSO) Lieutenant Joe Traylor graduated with his classmates Friday and received an award for Outstanding Academic Achievement, having achieved the top academic score in class. Additionally, his research paper, titled “Motivating and Retaining Law Enforcement Officers in 2019” was selected by the CJI faculty and staff for publication by the Institute.
Saline County Sheriff Rodney Wright stated, “The growth and development of our people at the Saline County Sheriff’s Office is of the upmost importance. I’m proud of Lt.
