On Saturday, August 20, 2022 at the annual Oklahoma Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association awards banquet Lieutenant Bruce Reynolds and Sergeant Cody Palmer of the Canadian County Sheriff’s Office received commendation awards for their performance in the area of firearms training. 

Lieutenant Reynolds and Sergeant Palmer, both long time employees with the Canadian County Sheriff’s Office working as a Patrol Lieutenant and as a Civil Division Sergeant serve in the additional capacity of Sheriff’s Office Firearms Instructors.  In this capacity, both deputies spend a considerable amount of time preparing lesson plans and working to implement new and innovative lifesaving training for the Sheriff’s Office.  The skills they develop and teach represent what deputies and other law enforcement officials might encounter in real life situations.  The training Reynolds and Palmer provide is exceptional and often far exceeds what is required.

During the past year, not only did both deputies go above beyond to provide this training, but both put in many extra hours assisting and insuring every deputy qualified. 

“We are very blessed to have firearms instructors of such a high caliber here at the sheriffs office.  Both men are extremely competent deputies who are also very dedicated employees.  Lieutenant Reynolds and Sergeant Palmer are both men of integrity and high moral character,” said Chris West, Canadian County Sheriff.
