Certifications and Training

Cory S. Rink believes training is a crucial element in maintaining skills and learning new techniques. Proper training is essential to brining highly qualified dispatchers, jailers, and deputies to the citizens of Garfield County.

Cory holds an Intermediate Law Enforcement Certification. This certification requires a minimum of 1,000 continuing education/training hours. Currently Cory has 1,293 hours of law enforcement training as well as over 1,500 hours of firefighter and emergency management training. Included in his hours of training, Cory has received both police chief and fire chief certifications – training that consists of day-to-day operations of the department, budgets, personnel issues, and management training.

As quoted from Enid News & Eagle, Rink says “Having my Basic Instructor Development allows me to teach on both sides of the table — sheriff and fire training. I want to work well with other departments and bring training to the table in Garfield County for all agencies.” (Rains, www.enidnews.com, 2016)
