Deputy Dave La Montaine, POAM’s rep on the Michigan Sheriff’s Coordinating & Training Council, was successful in introducing a proposal to allow qualified veterans abbreviated training to work in corrections at Sheriff’s Departments statewide.
Previously there was no provision to allow for qualified veterans to seamlessly transfer from a career in Military corrections to Sheriff’s Departments state wide.
Deputy La Montaine, a former US Marine, advocated for this proposal in recognition of the sacrifice all veterans have made for our freedoms. He has indicated that there is a country wide effort to hire veterans, and the MSCTC will now be a part of that honorable effort.
