GEORGETOWN COUNTY, SC (WMBF) - The Georgetown County Sheriff's Office is teaming with SLED and the Georgetown County School District to Conduct an Active Shooter Training.
There will be two, two-day sessions at Waccamaw High School in the Pawleys Island Community. The first will be on August 7-8 and the second will be on August 11-12. "It is unfortunate that this type of training is necessary," said Dr. Randy Dozier, Superintendent of the Georgetown County District, "but we are pleased to work with the Sheriff's Office and SLED to provide the best possible training for the law enforcement officers who protect our schools."
These sessions are for officers and instructors from several jurisdictions, including School Resource Officers, the Georgetown County Sheriff's Office, SLED, the Georgetown Police Department, and the Pawleys Island Police Department. Each class will consist of one day of classroom instruction followed by a day of practicing scenarios with role players in a school setting. "You train for the worst, but are always hopeful for the best when it comes to our children," Sheriff Lane Cribb of the Georgetown County Sheriff's Office commented.
