HCSO to Sign MOU with Brewton-Parker College to Create New Collaborative Educational Partnership

Hamilton County, TN – On Thursday, August 25, 2022 at 2:00 pm, Hamilton County Sheriff Jim Hammond, Sheriff-Elect Austin Garrett, and members of the HCSO will join Dr. Steve Echols, President of Brewton-Parker College (BPC), for a formal signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to create a partnership between our two organizations that will help assist our personnel to pursue and obtain higher education.

This new collaboration will allow our POST or BLET certified employees up to 30 hours of academic credit toward Brewton-Parker College’s undergraduate B.A. degree in Criminal Justice. Furthermore, employees who already have earned an associate's degree will receive credit toward BPC’s degree offerings. BPC’s B.A. degree in Criminal Justice is noteworthy for its state-of-the-art curriculum designed to emphasize professional skills and experiential learning.

This memorandum signing ceremony will be open to the media to attend and will take place in the Sheriff’s Conference Room located at 600 Market Street. Any reporters who are interested in attending should RSVP to jlea@hcsheriff.gov.

Interviews with Sheriff Hammond and Dr. Echols will be available pertaining to this event.
