The Oklahoma Sheriff and Peace Officers Association has announced Carter County Sheriff Ken Grace has been appointed to serve on the Council of Law Enforcement Education and Training Council and the CLEET Advisory Council as the OSPA's representative.
"We are looking for this partnership as always to the betterment of the law enforcement in our state," said Russell M. Higbie OSPA Executive Director.
Grace said he was very pleased to have been selected as the organization's representative to the CLEET Council and CLEET Advisory Council.
"I'm honored to represent the OSPA and all law enforcement officers throughout the State of Oklahoma in this capacity" Grace said. "I take this appointment very seriously. It is imperative our law enforcement officers receive education and training of the highest caliber. The better trained officers are the better their service to those they are sworn to protect. At times the difference in quality training can mean the difference between life and death."
Grace will not only serve as a member of the CLEET councils but will also be responsible to present reports at OSPA Board of Directors meetings, as well as the organization's annual conference.
Grace's appointment is for a four year term.
The OSPA is the state's oldest law enforcement association, representing all branches of law enforcement including, municipal, county, state, tribal and federal.
