2020 Kansas Sheriffs Association Fall Training Conference

The 2020 Kansas Sheriffs Association (KSA) Fall Training Conference will take place November 17th, 18, and 19th, 2020 at the Kansas Star Event Center in Mulvane, Kansas (9 miles south of Wichita, Kansas).  This is an exciting location for our Conference, and we expect to again set record crowds for the event.  In 2019 our Conference saw 300 attendees and we had 148 vendor booth spaces reserved.

As this is an election year for all Kansas Sheriffs and since several have announced their retirement, we do expect several new Sheriffs to attend this year's event.  This will be a fantastic opportunity to meet those Sheriffs and re-connect with those remaining in Office.

Additional information can be found in the Vendor Letter, including fees and schedule.

Sheriffs, Jail Administrators, and Friends,

The Kansas Jail Training Academy (KJTA) dates for 2020 include February 3rd - 7th, May 4th - 8th, August 10th - 14th, and November 9th - 13th.

The Kansas Jail Training Academy is offering this extensive five-day curriculum filled with training specifically for detention officers. Using NIJO trained instructors, we have collaborated with the Kansas Jail Association to ensure the primary topics needed for line level staff are thoroughly addressed, including complete testing on the material covered so that administrations have documentation of the attendee’s comprehension to these critical subjects. Price includes all lodging and meals for the duration of the academy.

All classes will now be held at the Kansas Law Enforcement Training Center (KLETC), 11009 South Hornet, Hutchinson, KS 67501.

We sincerely appreciate the opportunity to work with you and train your detention staff. The challenges most jails face of being short-staffed and dealing with turnover cannot be overstated, which further emphasizes the necessity of investing in our #1 resource in the jails – our staff. Thank you for supporting those that work in your jails by sending them to this training.
