Lt. Jason Caulder has successfully graduated from the 96th session of the Administrative Officers Management Program (AOMP), as announced by Pinehurst Police Chief Glen Webb.
The graduation took place on July 20 at the North Carolina State University McKimmon Conference and Training Center. Caulder joined 24 other candidates from state, county and municipal agencies.
“We are very proud of Jason and what he has accomplished,” said Chief Webb, who graduated in the 89th session. “He brought the same hard work and dedication to this program that we see in his daily service to the Village of Pinehurst.”
AOMP is a unique educational program for public safety professionals seeking career advancement. Three times a year, a class of 25 participants resides at the NC State Highway Patrol Training Academy in Raleigh for an intensive 12-week academic program.
The AOMP is a partnership that brings together the theoretical perspective of faculty and the practical experience of police officers to produce the effective and efficient public management techniques required in these increasingly complex times.
Caulder began his career as a Southern Pines police officer in 2008. He worked in various roles within the Southern Pines Police Department, including as a K-9 officer.
In 2016, Caulder accepted a sergeant’s position with the Pinehurst Police Department. In 2020, he was promoted to the rank of lieutenant. Caulder has served in various roles at Pinehurst, including a specialist instructor in electronic control weapons, subject control and arrest techniques, firearms and physical fitness.
In 2022, Caulder completed his Bachelor of Arts in Criminal Justice at the University of North Carolina at Pembroke.
