Sarasota County Sheriff Tom Knight is pleased to announce that Lt. Brian Meinberg has graduated from the 67th Command Officers Development Course sponsored by the Southern Police Institute, Department of Justice Administration at the University of Louisville.
Meinberg attended the 400-hour training program at the Broward Public Safety Institute in Ft. Lauderdale in five, two-week segments over a five month period. Participants learn to develop solutions to specific problems; plan, implement and evaluate management strategies; and understand federal requirements for personnel issues.
“Continuing education programs are a vital part of our agency’s succession planning,” said Sheriff Knight. “Future leaders must understand and initiate management best practices as they progress in their careers.”
Meinberg, who has worked for the Sarasota County Sheriff's Office since 2004, is currently assigned to the Corrections Operations Bureau.
