Essex County Correctional Facility and Sheriff’s Office, Middleton, Massachusetts Announce Use of Policecommunity.net In-Service Online Training Courses For Training All Officers and Personnel

The Response Network (TRN), owner and operator of Policecommunity.net, the leading provider of in-service online training and administrative tracking software solutions, today announced that the Essex County, Massachusetts Sheriff’s Office will utilize the portal to train its more than 500 corrections officers and personnel.
According to Sheriff Frank Cousins, Jr., “By extending our education and training efforts to include The Response Network’s Policecommunity.net in-service online training portal, our department will be much more consistent in our training curriculum while substantially reducing costs. It will allow us to balance current economic challenges, help satisfy the increasingly challenging and complex demands of the corrections profession and maintain the professionalism our agency.
“Providing on-demand online training courses will allow us to keep more officers on duty rather than sitting in classrooms or attending costly in-person training seminars. The education and training available from the experts at Policecommunity.net meets or exceeds industry standards and will help our officers to better meet the needs of our community. Plus, we can provide exactly the courses we want with a training curriculum customized to our agency.”
For over 300 years the members of the Essex County Sheriff's Department have been serving the public-safety needs of the residents of the 34 cities and towns that comprise the region. The tradition began under the colonial-era leadership of George Corwin, William Gedney, Thomas Wainwright, Daniel Denison and Michael Farley, and continues today under the leadership of current Sheriff Frank G. Cousins, Jr.
Initially, offenders from the county were housed at two separate facilities in Salem and Lawrence. The first Salem Jail was constructed to serve citizens north of Boston and was operational in 1638. Many historians say it was the first detention facility of its kind built in the country. Some scholars believe victims of Salem's infamous Witch Trials were incarcerated at the jail.
According to Sheriff Cousins, the Essex County Sheriff’s Office, which is one of the oldest continuing operating law enforcement agencies in the country, will be utilizing Policecommunity.net’s advanced, custom-designed courses in Use of Force, Legal Updates, Law Enforcement Information Network and Emergency Vehicle Operations, among others.
The Response Network President & CEO Bradley J. Naples stated that he was excited by Sheriff Cousins’ personal vision to transition the office’s training operations into the digital age with Policecommunity.net. “Sheriff Cousins is a highly focused visionary who provides a measured and disciplined approach to solidifying Essex County’s reputation as a world-class law enforcement department. I have been impressed with the staff of Essex County and their attention to maintaining the most professional atmosphere for all personnel. We feel the training provided by The Response Network will enable the department to cost-effectively maintain a superior level of knowledge and readiness and also reduce the amount of time necessary to complete required training.”
