The North Georgia Premium Outlet Mall became a training ground when sheriff's deputies and other law enforcement personnel participated in a mock active shooter scenario last week. Dawson County Sheriff's Office deputies and communications staff, as well as the Lumpkin County Sheriff's Office Special Response Team (SRT) participated in the April 19 drill in which responding officers were not given any details about the scenario. "The only information provided to the responding officers was that there was an active shooter," said Sheriff Jeff Johnson.
