The Northampton County Sheriff’s Office recognized Sergeant Ashley Leitner for her certification achievements.
Captain Patrick Jacobs said Leitner serves as a criminal investigator within the sheriff’s office.
In December Leitner was awarded the Intermediate Deputy Law Enforcement Certificate, which reflects cumulative years of law enforcement experience, achievements in education, and professional law enforcement training. “The Intermediate Deputy Law Enforcement Certificate has placed Sergeant Ashley Leitner among the elite of law enforcement officers within the state of North Carolina,” Jacobs said.
In November the sergeant completed certification and training with the National Association of Computer Voice Stress Analysts.
She is also certified as a member of the National Institution of Truth Verification Federal Services. “These certifications serve as a great asset to the Northampton County Sheriff’s Office and any surrounding agencies with criminal investigations,” Jacobs said.
Today Leitner completed 101 hours becoming certified as a North Carolina Criminal Justice General Instructor for law enforcement training in the state of North Carolina.
This certification training was completed at Halifax Community College
“I am extremely proud of Sergeant Ashley Leitner on these great achievements and awards she has received,” Sheriff Jack Smith said. “These achievements are a great honor for every officer to achieve. I am extremely thankful for the many years of dedication and service that she has given to law enforcement and serving the great citizens of Northampton County.”
