Cultivating and enhancing law enforcement leadership, both for the present and the future, remains a goal that organizations continually strive to enhance and excel in. The Henry County Sheriff’s Office (HCSO) has taken this call to excellence straight from Sheriff Reginald B. Scandrett’s “Top Six” priorities, specifically “Empower and Engage Employees,” while these leaders help ensure the HCSO succeeds in all priorities. The vision was cast in 2021, when Sheriff Scandrett made leadership development a top priority. Over the next three years, the vision became practical training, educational courses and guest leadership speakers for the members of the HCSO. From nationally recognized and regional instructors and presenters to our own Sheriff and staff, training was targeted to prepare our leaders for current and emerging law enforcement trends and issues. Topics included foundational supervision, management and leadership principles, and included special courses: Leadership with Sheriff Scandrett, Leading through Compassion- Regarding Mental Health, Leadership Issues for Managers, Empowerment Leadership , and many others.
