Office of Professional Standards and Training

The Office of Professional Standards & Training is managed by Captain Ryan Wimberley, who has 
been employed with Bainbridge Public Safety since April of 1996.


The Office of Professional Standards & Training is primarily responsible for the research, drafting, and implementation of departmental policy and procedures. This office also manages the day-to-day administrative functions of the Bainbridge Public Safety Department including Records Management, Court Services, and the internal investigations of misconduct by its officers and employees.


Members of Bainbridge Public Safety are dual certified as both law enforcement officers and firefighters. As such, the Office of Professional Standards & Training is responsible for coordinating and managing all in-service and advanced training in both law enforcement and firefighting services. Officers are required to obtain a minimum of 44 hours a year of training in both of these services. Training includes but is not limited to firearms, use of force, pump and ladder operations, hazardous material awareness, DUI enforcement, and crash victim extrication.

Bainbridge Public Safety also actively participates in various other community relations functions to include safety presentations and career days for both schools and businesses.
