El Paso, TX – The El Paso County Sheriff’s Office is holding a Special Response Team (SRT) School from June 22nd – 26th, 2015.

SRT squad members are trained to respond to violent inmates, riots, and other emergency situations using the least amount of force necessary to control the situation.

The school is currently training 15 Sheriff’s Office Detention Officers, and 4 detention officers from Curitiba Brazil. The Brazilian SRT team heard about the Sheriff’s Office SRT program and they sent their best officers so they can take back and train their personnel in prison operations.

This morning the trainees completed a grueling obstacle course, and they will continue their training throughout the week.

Training exercises are open to our media partners if you’d like to attend one of the sessions please contact Public Information Officer; Leslie Antunez at lantunez@epcounty.com .
