Published 6:12 pm Thursday, February 9, 2012

Nicholas Correll Stott of the Columbus Police Department recently completed the Traffic Enforcement and Investigation Certificate Program at the North Carolina Justice Academy.
The Traffic Enforcement and Investigation Certificate Program is designed to recognize the achievement of law enforcement officers who have dedicated themselves to making the highways safer for citizens. Upon completion of the program, officers will have mastered several important aspects of traffic enforcement and related topics.
The program requires the participants to be sworn law enforcement officers of a law enforcement agency and have at least two years’ experience as a full-time officer. In addition, participants are required to have approval from the head of their agency to participate in the program because of the time spent away from the agency to complete the program. The program requires 500 hours of training. Core requirements include the following courses:
• Introduction to traffic crash investigation
• At-scene traffic crash investigation
• Drug enforcement for patrol officers
• Intoxilyzer 5000 operator, RADAR and standardized field sobriety testing.
The core courses consist of 203 hours. All other hours needed to complete the program are traffic-related electives.
The N.C. Justice Academy, located in Salemburg and Edneyville, N.C., develops and conducts training courses for local and state law enforcement professionals. The academy provides training programs and technical assistance through the five centers of the training division: Investigations, legal, management, commission/in-service and tactical/traffic.
The justice academy is a division of the N.C. Dept. of Justice under the administration of Attorney General Roy Cooper.
