LEXINGTON COUNTY, SC - Lexington County Sheriff’s Department Deputy Randall Phillips received the Director’s Fitness Award on Friday, March 8 during a basic law enforcement officer training class graduation that the South Carolina Criminal Justice Academy conducted.

Lexington County Sheriff James R. Metts said South Carolina Criminal Justice Academy Director Hubert F. Harrell presented the award to Phillips, 27, of Columbia. On September 17, 2012, Metts appointed Phillips to serve as a deputy.

Participants in the basic law enforcement officer training class must complete a physical abilities test that is conducted on a course with nine obstacles, Metts said. The Fitness Award is presented to the officer in each training class who completes the course in the fastest time, with a minimum time of two minutes and seven seconds. In order to be considered for the Fitness Award, officers also must complete the three-mile Challenge Run in a time of 25 minutes or less and successfully complete all cadre-led runs.

Phillips also received the Distinguished Graduate Award at the law enforcement officer training class graduation, Metts said. The award is presented to an officer who attains a score of at least 960 points out of 1,000 points on academic tests administered during the training class.
