FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: January 10, 2014

LINCOLN COUNTY SHERIFF’S OFFICE PARTNERS WITH THE VETERANS ADMINISTRATION

The Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office Jail Administration recently singed into an agreement to partner in the Veteran Administration’s Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment program.  This program helps returning veterans obtain specific job training, undergo skills coaching and gain meaningful employment. 

“Being a veteran myself, I understand returning vets leave the military with a wealth of transferable skills and professionalism,” said Sheriff Cottle.  “We entered into this agreement to assist veteran’s transition from one life into another, including those veterans with service-connect disabilities.”

The Veterans Administration Vocational Rehabilitation program matches returning veterans to the Sheriff’s Office, for a career in corrections.  Once entered into the program, the Sheriff’s Office encourages veterans who want to expand their career in law enforcement by sponsoring them for the Missouri Sheriff’s Association Training Academy.

“I am a strong advocate of military veteran employment and we will do our part to combat the unemployment challenges facing today’s vets,” said Sheriff Cottle.  The Sheriff says he is grateful his office can act as a portal linking veterans to quality employment and a great career in corrections. 

The Sheriff’s Office provides on the job training and workplace modification, when necessary, for those veterans facing extraordinary obstacle to employment.
