The Ohio Office of Criminal Justice Services announced last week that the Hardin County Sheriff’s Office recently completed the Ohio Collaborative re-certification process.
Recertification takes place on a revolving three to four year cycle.
The standards are the first of their kind in Ohio and were developed and established as part of the state’s effort to strengthen community and police relations.
The state has teamed with the Buckeye State Sheriff’s Association and the Ohio Association of Chiefs of Police to help certify Ohio’s nearly 900 law enforcement agencies to ensure that they are in compliance with Ohio’s new standards.
