The training included Terrorism Awareness, Domestic Violence, Critical Incident Response, Firearms Training, First Responder Certification, Illinois Vehicle Code, Criminal Law, Motor Carrier Safety, Juvenile Law, and more.

  The ISP Academy is one of the most respected and recognized training facilities in the country.  Dozens of law enforcement agencies also use ISP Academy curriculum to meet standards set forth by the Illinois Law Enforcement Training and Standards Board.

  Deputy Castle has received the best training available at the ISP Academy, Sheriff Bruce Kettelkamp explains.  His newly learned skills will serve him well as he gains experience with the Christian County Sheriff’s Office.

  Deputy Castle will spend the next 6 weeks with a field training officer before he will be assigned to patrol on his own.

  Deputy Castle and his wife Calee reside in Pana. Deputy Castle is the son of Mr. & Mrs. Tim Castle and the grandson of Mr. & Mrs. John Castle.
