Placer County Sheriff’s Office For the last day of our Advanced Officer training, which runs from January through May each year and is put on by our training division, deputies used all their skills in scenario-based training.
There were three scenarios: an active shooter; a domestic violence call; and an officer shot during a traffic stop. For the first time, deputies trained with an emergency medical team for responding to an active shooter scene. Once deputies deemed an area “warm” (shooter is unlikely present and the benefit to victims outweighs the risk), a second team with two deputies and EMT’s enter the scene, looking for injured victims and tagging them depending on the severity of their injuries. Another team then evacuated and treated role-playing victims.
For the domestic violence call scenario, the responding deputies encounter a female victim and two males at the scene. Different scenarios are played out with the two males, one with a gunshot wound and the other was either outside the house or inside hiding. These types of calls can be very dangerous for deputies.
In the third scenario, a deputy was shot during a traffic stop. The responding deputy had to provide medical aid and place the injured deputy in the back of the patrol car for transporting to a hospital. Since Placer County has so many rural areas, help can be far away and the chance of survival increases when medical aid is rendered immediately.
All of the participating deputies did well and we’re thankful our training division put on such important training. … See MoreSee Less
Placer County Sheriff’s Office Today was day one of the Police Unity Tour. Our Placer Sheriff team did great! The Unity Tour is a fundraiser for the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund in Washington DC.
The Unity Tour ride raises funds for the Memorial and also raises awareness of officers killed in the line of duty.
Today, 500 riders from around the United States rode nearly 90 miles from Eatontown in northern New Jersey to Atlantic City.
When the ride is finished, our team will have biked nearly 300-miles to the Memorial and picked up more riders to finish 2,000 strong. The ride is entirely made up of law enforcement officers and the surviving family members of fallen officers.
During today’s ride we saw numerous kids cheering us on along the route! We love the support! 👮🏻♂️🚲🇺🇸 #WeRideForThoseWhoDied. … See MoreSee Less
