El Paso, TX – The El Paso County Sheriff’s Office held a Special Response Team (SRT) School from September 14th – 18th, 2015.

This SRT school saw a 100 percent passing rate for its 13 trainees following the week long intensive training.

Trainees focused on tactics and techniques in force training, and riot control. The 13 trainees were certified in the following categories:

One Man Extractions, Tactical Shields, Dynamics in Room Evacuations, Pepperball, TASER, Mobile Field Force-RIOT and SPEAR.

Officers also went through numerous team building exercises to include a confidence course, and rescue drills.

"The most important thing about the school is that they become certified in techniques and tactics, and the most important thing is the safety of the inmate they need to extract.” - Officer Luis Trevino.

“The training was like no other, one of the best schools we have been too. It mainly focused on how to become a team, one unit” ~Officer J. Coombs-Arizona ESU Team Leader            

This SRT school trained nine Sheriff’s Office Detention Officers, and four detention officers from the Salt River Department of Corrections in Arizona.
