Categories: Latest News

Sheriff's Foundation LogoBWSFBCClassroomLogosmFoundation Sponsors and Annual Members are cordially invited to attend the first combined educational event of the Sheriff’s Foundation Academy and the Sheriff’s Foundation Classroom – a BSO/SWAT full-scale anti-terrorism training scenario. If interested, you can even participate in the scenario script as a hostage or hostage taker! The scenario is still in the developmental stages, but we do know that it is a terrorist based incident that will involve a business/governmental meeting takeover by a domestic or foreign terrorist cell. It will start with a law enforcement patrol response and develop into a SWAT/Hostage Barricade situation. This event is limited to 40 persons and spaces will be filled on a first-come-first-served basis.
