Sergeant John Driver graduated from Western North Carolina Law Enforcement Leadership Academy at AB Tech on  June 11, 2021.  This program is a problem based learning style environment where the student is responsible for much of the learning experience.  It is an in-depth examination of leadership issues and practices that are either utilized, or should be utilized in the law enforcement community. This course was developed by staff at the Asheville-Buncombe Technical Community College in conjunction with leaders from area law enforcement agencies which includes our Town's Police Chief, Chris Beddingfield. The program consists of six sessions spaced out over a term of six months. Please congratulate Sergeant Driver on this amazing accomplishment when you see him!
