EPCSO OFFICERS TO HOST INTERNATIONAL SRT SCHOOL IN BRAZIL

March 29, 2017

El Paso, TX – The El Paso County Sheriff’s Office will have three detention officers who specialize in special response tactics travel to Curitiba Brazil to host a Special Response Team school.

Sheriff’s Office detention officers and officers from the Pima, Maricopa Arizona Department of Corrections will provide instruction to correctional staff from Brazil, Argentina, and Chile inside the state and federal prisons in Curitiba, Brazil. The school will also provide Sheriff’s Office officers with additional training and techniques for implementation in future courses.

The train will consist of the following: One Man Cell Extractions, Two-Man Tactics extractions, Riot/Civil Disturbance, and Hostage and Rescue in a Correctional Setting.

This Special Response School is a continuing relationship between the Sheriff’s Office, and the correctional staff in Brazil as well as other law enforcement agencies who take part in these instruction courses. In previous years, the Sheriff’s Office has hosted two yearly Special Response Schools in El Paso, Texas, with attendance from law enforcement staff from Arizona, Florida, and Brazil. In the past, the Brazilian correctional staff has used the Special Response training in Riot/Civil Disturbance in preparation for the 2016 Rio Olympics.

Sheriff Richard D. Wiles, El Paso County Sheriff’s Office, and lead instructor Officer Luis Trevino continue to develop the program for special response tactics in a correctional setting. The Sheriff’s Office is quickly becoming a household name for special response tactic training, so much so that the law enforcement agencies who part-take in the training require their staff to successfully complete the course to further their job performance.

Sheriff’s Office Detention Officers Trevino, Leos, and Corporal Moreno will be traveling to Curitiba, Brazil, for the training.

The training will be held May 15-18, 2017.
