Members of the Huron County Sheriff's Office completed nearly 2,941 hours of training in 2013.
"We're been very vigilant in training in the last several years. We feel significant training is a key to success," Sheriff Dane Howard said.
Deputies had 909 hours of road patrol-related training, which focused on investigations and safety.
In 2013, the sheriff's office completed 498 hours of communication training. Howard said most of that time was focused on the new CAD (computer-aided dispatch) system.
A majority of last year's training was for the jail. About 1,298 hours focused primarily on safety and jail standards.
"Lt. (Terry) Shean is in charge of monitoring the training files and monitoring our training efforts. She's been very successful with those efforts," Howard said.
