September 3, 2010 at 1:18 pm

Bob Malone, assistant chief of police at the University of South Carolina Upstate, recently attended the Narcotics Commanders School, a five-day training conducted by the District of South Carolina United States Attorney’s Office through its Law Enforcement Coordinating Committee (LECC) Drug Subcommittee.

Malone was selected from a pool of applications across South Carolina to attend the 19th annual Narcotics Commanders School. Twenty-eight narcotics officers in management or supervisory positions attended the training held at the National Advocacy Center at the University of South Carolina in Columbia, which is the national training center for the U.S. Department of Justice.

Although officers learn about some of the newest drug trends and  resources available to state and local law enforcement, the course is designed to teach both experienced and new law enforcement supervisors about management skills they can apply to certain situations in the narcotics investigation field.
