The certificate program recognizes the achievement of law enforcement professionals who have dedicated themselves to making their communities and neighborhoods safer for N.C. citizens. Program participants must be sworn members of a law enforcement agency and have at least two years of full-time law enforcement experience. Each participant must complete 500 hours of training within five years of acceptance into the program, including a variety of tactical oriented courses.

Brown is a 1998 graduate of Watauga High School.  He completed his Basic Law Enforcement Training at Mayland Community College in February 2002 and was certified as police officer with Appalachian’s University Police in March 2002.

Roger Miller, an instructor with the N.C. Justice Academy and program coordinator said, “The commitment of Lt. Brown to complete this program is a direct example of his dedication to protect the community in which he serves. His effort to stay in the forefront of tactical training is a direct reflection on the commitment of the Appalachian State University Police Department to ensure that their officers are prepared to meet the day-to-day dangers faced by law enforcement officers today.”

Miller said officers completing the program have mastered important aspects of tactical training and achieved a high level of professionalism for themselves and their organizations.
