Dawson County Deputies recently completed three days of active shooter training designed to better prepare them for ever increasing active shooter threats. The training focused on responding to school related violence. Although the training was primarily oriented towards initial responding School Resource Officers and Patrol Officers, it included members from all components. “Realizing that active shooter situations have become more prevalent; it’s important to constantly prepare our officers, both mentally and tactically,” said Dawson County Sheriff Jeff Johnson.
