Lieutenant J. S. Cranfill has graduated from the Law Enforcement Leadership and Management Development Program at Rowan-Cabarrus Community College on April 15th, 2011. Lieutenant Cranfill was one of fourteen officers to successfully complete the program in North Carolina.

The certificate program is for sworn personnel designed to assist city, county, and state employees with training they need to become a more qualified planner and decision maker. It is for the officer being considered for promotion, as well as the current supervisor wanting to improve their interpersonal skills.

Each course is designed to be fast-paced and require out-of-class work.
