Deputies and officers from the Marshall County Sheriff’s Office, Calloway County Sheriff’s Office, and Benton Police Department conducted a multi-agency training Thursday.
According to a release from Calloway County Sheriff’s Office, the Marshall County Special Response Team (SRT) trained at a couple of locations in Calloway County. Marshall County’s SRT has members from both Marshall County Sheriff’s Office and Benton Police Department. Benton Police Chief Stephen Sanderson said, “The Marshall County SRT is often called to adjacent counties, including Calloway, to assist with high risk situations.”
Calloway County Sheriff Nicky Knight said, “Since my appointment as sheriff, I’ve made efforts to strengthen partnerships throughout the region. This includes the type of training going on today.”
Marshall County Sheriff Eddie McGuire said, “When Sheriff Knight contacted me about using locations in Calloway County for SRT training, it was a perfect opportunity to increase the multi-agency partnership as well as providing realistic training for the team.”
Calloway County Sheriff’s Office, as well as Marshall County SRT, have additional training days scheduled throughout the month of October.
