BETTY GRAY | CONTRIBUTED EMERGENCY RESPONSE: Law enforcement officers from the Beaufort County and Washington County Sheriff's Departments and members of the Beaufort County Community College police force recently participated in rapid deployment training offered at BCCC. The officers attended classroom sessions and participated in various scenarios such as hostage rescue and active shooter training that were set up and evaluated by their instructors Christopher Harrison, BCCC chief of police; Leonard Hudson, BCCC public safety programs director, and Lt. Cliff Hales of the Washington Police Department. While BCCC has offered the training for several years, this is the first group of officers to use newly purchased equipment that allows them to more accurately reflect real-life situations. Pictured above, class members practice a rapid deployment maneuver known as a "Rolling T" that is commonly used when responding to ongoing emergencies. Pictured, front row, left to right, are Officer Natalie Perez with the BCCC Police Department, Washington County Sheriff's Deputy Walter Hamilton, Beaufort County Sheriff's Deputy Ernest Moore and Beaufort County Sheriff's Deputy Darrin Hall.
