Cops in Court training comes to First District

Assistant District Attorneys with the First Judicial District Attorney General’s Office this week in connection with the Tennessee Highway Safety Office held POST certified training for new officers entitled “Cops in Court.”
The purpose of the training was to inform new officers on how to prepare a case for court and provide actual testimony in a courtroom. Law enforcement officers were then divided into small groups and participated in mock trials prepared and directed by the Assistant District Attorneys of the First Judicial District.
This is the first time the State presenters have come to the First Judicial District as it usually requires local law enforcement agencies to spend their local funds for the officers to attend this training in Nashville.
The local training was spearheaded by Assistant District Attorney Murphy Mullins, and law enforcement officers from almost every agency in the First Judicial District participated.
The District Attorney’s Office will continue to bring training to law enforcement in the First Judicial District to effectively bring improved cases to conviction.
