Last week, the Atascosa County Sheriff’s Office sponsored Active Shooter Training at Pleasanton High School. The ten-hour course was taught by instructors from Reality Defense Incorporated of Pleasanton. Pleasanton ISD Police Chief Michael Gilbert hosted the training, and Pleasanton ISD administration allowed the use of a school wing.
Ten officers from the Atascosa County Sheriff’s Office took the training, along with several Pleasanton, Jourdanton, and Pleasanton ISD police officers. Officers from the Pct. 3 Constable’s Office also participated.
“Training is so important in our business. It may mean the difference between life and death – not just your own life, but others as well,” said Sheriff David Soward, who personally took part in the training. The Sheriff wants to thank Chief Eric Kaiser and Chief Ronald Sanchez for their assistance with the training.
