Aurora, CO — Hamilton County Sheriff Douglas D. Timmons completed participation in the 113th session of the National Sheriff’s Institute (NSI) held in Aurora, CO from September 18 to 22. The NSI is the only national executive development program designed for sheriffs. This no-cost program is co-sponsored by the National Institute of Corrections (NIC) and the National Sheriffs’ Association (NSA).

Timmons joined 29 other sheriffs from across the country for training on contemporary challenges facing America’s sheriffs today. In light of those challenges, the sheriffs explored the role of the local sheriff in providing effective leadership for the public good in such areas as public safety, criminal justice system policy, community relations and organization effectiveness and efficiency.

Hilary Burgess, NSA Director of Professional Development, said, “Sheriff Timmons is a leader with vision for the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office. It is an honor to have Sheriff Timmons join the more than 2,800 graduates the NSI since 1973.”

The NIC is a division of the U.S. Department of Justice, Bureau of Prisons. It is the primary federal source of technical assistance, training and information services for state and local corrections. NIC provides a wide variety of services to the nation’s jails, most of which are the responsibility of sheriffs.
