The Adams County Sheriff’s Office commissioned the Interact Business Group to conduct research on several key issues related to the training of the Sheriff’s Office’s law enforcement service personnel. IBG is a leading consulting firm specializing in the training needs, facility requirements, and cost relationships of public safety training organizations. This report evaluates options and recommends the best and most practical course of action for providing required training activities for the Adams County Sheriff’s Office.

- What are the training needs of the Sheriff’s Office?
- What training facilities does the Sheriff’s Office need to meet its training demands?
- What are the cost factors and logistical advantages of creating a dedicated training facility that would meet the Sheriff’s Office’s immediate and long-term needs?
