Active Shooter Response Training

Over the last three days the Navarro County Sheriffs Office has conducted a free 8 hour Active Shooter Response Training which is always made available to all Navarro County Law Enforcement agencies. This valuable training was graciously hosted by the Corsicana ISD Police Department at the CISD Navarro Elementary school campus.

Training of this type and magnitude is serious and designed to be as close to a real active shooter event as possible. The training is both physically and mentally demanding as simunition weapons and ammunition are utilized during the scenario based training.

With these tragic events happening more and more frequently, it is important more than ever before that law enforcement conduct these joint training operations.

It is imperative for our children, school teachers, staff and the general public to know and be assured that we officers are better prepared for potential critical incidents should they occur within our community.

I would like to thank the following agencies for participating in this years event:

Navarro County Sheriffs Office, Corsicana Police Department, Texas Department of Public Safety, Corsicana ISD Police, Navarro College Police, Rice Police Department, Dawson Police Department, Navarro County Constable Pct. 4, and Blooming Grove ISD Police.

I would also like to thank Chief Henley and the Corsicana Fire and Rescue Rapid Extraction Team for their participation in triage and treatment training.

I want to thank and commend our NCSO instructors, all officers who participated and especially the CISD for allowing us to utilize their facility for this important and crucial training.
