Lincoln County Sheriff’s Deputy Clint Bailey was one of 44 new law enforcement officers congratulated by Eric Jackson, the special agent in charge of the FBI’s Kansas City Field Office, during their recent graduation from the Kansas Law Enforcement Training Center.
The new officers were members of the 236th basic training class at the center.
Bailey is a 2010 graduate of Sylvan Unified High School and a graduate of Pratt Community College. In 2012, Bailey moved to Lincoln and began working for the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Department as a dispatcher, and later moved in to a role as a jailer with the department in 2014.
Bailey obtained his part-time officer certification from the KLETC in 2014 before completing his full-time officer certification in October, and beginning his official duties as a full-time officer with the LCSD at the end of last month.
Located one mile west and one mile south of Yoder, near Hutchinson, the center is a division of the University of Kansas Continuing Education.
The 44 graduates, who began their training July 20 of this year, represented 36 municipal, county and state law enforcement agencies from across Kansas.
