A local prosecutor's effort to train law enforcement officers on new laws and court decisions relevant to them got a boost this year thanks to officials with several state agencies. Henry County Commonwealth's Attorney Bob Bushnell has held training on new state laws that affect law enforcement officers annually since he became commonwealth's attorney in 1990, he said. A few years ago, the state Department of Criminal Justice Services approved allowing officers who take the training to receive in-service credits toward their annual training requirements, Bushnell said. Offering the credits boosted attendance because it gave officers an incentive to take part, he said. The training, generally held in early July, always includes information about new laws passed that year by the General Assembly. Such laws typically go into effect July 1.
