Alexandria, VA – The Culpeper County Public Safety Communications Center, VA, has met the minimum training standards for the Association of Public-Safety Communications Officials (APCO) International Agency Training Program Certification and has been awarded certification as of Jan. 29, 2016.

Ensuring that training programs and procedures are current, comprehensive, and effective is a key element to success in this role. Achieving APCO Agency Training Program Certification is proof of an agency’s commitment to excellence and of their dedication to the communities they serve.”
