Sheriff’s Office Partnership Provides Training to New Recruits at West Valley

October 24, 2023 — EM Update

WEST VALLEY, N.Y. – EM’s West Valley Demonstration Project (WVDP) recently held a graduation ceremony for six security police officers who completed a seven‐week course through a unique partnership with the local sheriff’s office.

Normally, the officers take the course at DOE’s National Training Center (NTC) in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

However, in 2021 the WVDP management team — which consisted of representatives from EM, its cleanup contractor CH2M HILL BWXT West Valley (CHBWV), and security subcontractor Paragon Energy — developed a plan for the officers to be trained by instructors from Paragon and the Cattaraugus County Sheriff’s Office using sheriff’s office facilities. The training plan was approved by the NTC.
