Background Information
The Gila County Sheriff's Office (GCSO) does not have its own academy and is required to train its Detention Officers. The GCSO contacts agencies as needed throughout the state that operate Detention Officer Training Academies and requests seats for Detention Officers to attend. The COTA is one that the Sheriff's Office would like to utilize as needed by GCSO Detention Officers when space is available. This agreement outlines the responsibilities of COTA and the GCSO regarding the use of the Training Academy.
Evaluation
COTA responsibilities: will provide training space, when available, for GCSO Detention Officers. COTA will conduct a certified 280 hour, seven (7) week pre-service training academy by certified Peace Officer Standards and Training Department employees. Training and education will be conducted in ten (10) core areas: Ethics and Professionalism; Inmate Management; Legal Issues; Communication; Officer Safety; Applied Skills; Security; Custody and Control; Conflict and Crisis Management and Medical and Mental Issues. COTA will provide complete usage of its facility, and shall provide the following amenities including, but not limited to: housing, food, classroom, textbooks, weapons and ammunition for training purposes. GCSO responsibilities: agrees to pay $810 per registrant; agrees to pay $21.50 per day per participant for In-Service Training; will provide statutory worker's compensation insurance, salary, benefits, weapons, ammunition, and uniforms.
Conclusion
The GCSO plans to utilize the COTA on an as-needed basis to assist in the training of the GCSO Detention Officers. This Interagency Service Agreement shall be effective for a period of four (4) years.
