The Sheriff's Office is the only Training Provider in Johnson County. According to the Texas Com-mission on Law Enforcement (TCOLE), it is a requirement for each training provider to appoint an advisory board. The purpose and function of an advisory board is to serve the training provider by providing guidance in the establishment of curriculum, training needs, frequency and location of courses, standards for admission to training programs, class size, attendance requirements, and retention.

The composition of the board provides many perspectives to the issues mentioned in the previous paragraph. The diversity of experience among board members should assist the training provider to better assess the needs of the training program which, in turn, will deliver better service to the constituents who utilize the training program for the professional development of law enforcement officers, jailers, and telecommunicators.

Serving as a member of the advisory board for a law enforcement training provider is more than an honor. Each board member carries with it a duty and responsibility that will impact the professional development of those who serve in a law enforcement capacity and, equally important, the community in which the law enforcement personnel serve. TCOLE requires a minimum of 1 meeting per year; however, the Advisory Board meets every three months.

The Sheriff's Office has 11 individuals (civilians and law enforcement) that make up the Training Advisory Board. The backgrounds range from business leaders in the community, business owners, and academia. Two of these individuals are non-voting members; the Sheriff and the Training Coordinator.
