Alfonzo Williams, sheriff-elect for Burke County, has completed the 160-hour sheriffs-elect academy.
Williams and 33 other newly elected sheriffs were required by the state to report to the month-long academy immediately after the general election to be trained in topics they will face as the chief law enforcement officer of their county, according to a news release.
Williams attended training in Forsyth and completed the course Dec. 16. The 160-hour curriculum included classroom instruction emphasizing the duties of the chief law enforcement officer of their county.
