CANTON, GA (October 17, 2023) – Cherokee County E-911’s training program recently received APCO (Association of Public-Safety Communications Officials) International certification.

“Training is imperative in any line of work, but training the first line of communication for all public safety is paramount to successful calls,” said E-911 Director Shane Bonebrake. “Our training manager, Heather Bradberry, and her team do a phenomenal job making sure all of our call takers and dispatchers are ready to answer your call.”

E-911 submitted its training curriculum for APCO International’s Agency Training Program Certification, a Project 33 Initiative. The review evaluated training curriculum to ensure it provides trainees with both the required content and focuses on the demonstration of decision and psychomotor skills cited within the standard.

Cherokee E-911 will be recognized during APCO’s 90th Annual Conference & Expo in August 2024.

In addition to APCO International’s three-year curriculum certification, E-911 holds CALEA (Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies) accreditation, an internationally recognized accrediting agency for law enforcement.
