Sheriff Tracy Carter graduated on March 16, 2012 from the Sheriffs’ Leadership Institute. This training was sponsored by the North Carolina Sheriffs’ Association and funded through a grant from the Governor’s Crime Commission. Thirty-five sheriffs from across the state received their certificates at a ceremony held at the William and Ida Friday Center at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.
The Sheriffs’ Leadership Institute consisted of four one-week training programs conducted over a period of two years. The first two weeks were designed primarily for newly-elected sheriffs and provided specific, technical skills necessary to assume the Office of Sheriff. The second two weeks were designed for newly-elected and experienced sheriffs to further their knowledge, skills, and abilities in the leadership and management of the Sheriff’s Office.
This Institute is a national model and provided leadership and technical training, specifically designed for sheriffs, like no other training in the United States.
The Association Headquarters is located in Raleigh, North Carolina. Edmond W. Caldwell, Jr. serves as Executive Vice President and General Counsel.
(Presenting the Sheriff his diploma is Attorney General Roy Cooper)
