The Tunica County Sheriff's Office is pleased to announce the recent graduation of Deputy Sheriff Mikel Connell from the Mississippi Law Enforcement Officer Training Academy in Pearl, Mississippi on Thursday, April 3, 2014. Deputy Connell successfully completed the 12 week Basic Law Enforcement Training to help begin his law enforcement career.
The next step for Deputy Connell will be field training, where he will be paired with a field Training Officer (FTO) for several weeks. The FTO will bridge the academy training and practical applications of what he has learned.
Deputy Connell was congratulated by Deputy Chrisitan Brown and Deputy Edward Mitchell on his endurance and dedication.
