Over the last three days the Navarro County Sheriff's Office has conducted a free eight-hour Active Shooter Response Training, which was made available to all Navarro County Law Enforcement Agencies.

With tragic shootings happening more around the country, it's imperative that our children, school teachers, staff and the general public rest assured that the officers within our community are well prepared for a potential threat.

Training of this type and magnitude is serious and designed to be as close to a real active shooter as possible.

The following agencies partook in the active shooter training event:

Navarro County Sheriff's 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.

This valuable training was graciously hosted by the Corsicana ISD Police Department at the Navarro Elementary school campus.

“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,” said Sheriff Elmer Tanner.
