The Cass County Sheriff’s Office Regional Training Academy held their third culmination ceremony this month. The ceremony held in Harrisonville honored eleven graduates for their completion of the 648 hour law enforcement academy. The evening of recognition included accolades and scholarly advice from honored guest such as Cass County Sheriff Dwight Diehl and Gladstone Police Department Ret. Sergeant Becky Davis.

The training academy recognized Class 1501 recruits for outstanding achievements. Awards were presented to the following:

  • Valedictorian – Dominic DiFiore
  • High Firearms – Dominic DiFiore
  • Physical Fitness Award – Dominic DiFiore
  • Class President – Dominic DiFiore

Several recruits graduated in uniform from their respective agencies and were presented with badges. Belton Police Chief James Person presented badges to Dominic DiFiore, Trevor Liniger, Marvin Shaw, and Tim York. Recruit Austin Prindle was presented his badge by Gladstone Police Chief Mike Hasty. Bates County Sheriff Lieutenant Justin Corbin presented Chris Brison with his badge.

Sheriff Dwight Diehl believes local communities benefit when local working law enforcement, judicial and emergency services professionals train new peace officers.

The Regional Training Academy conducts one part-time, 648 hour Class A certified training class per year. The next academy will begin in February of 2016. Anyone interested in attending the academy can contact Director Craig McMein at 816-380-8309 or
