On Wednesday, Aug. 16, three Placer County Sheriff’s Office specialty teams came to the now-closed Dry Creek Elementary School in Roseville for a joint training.
The Placer County Sheriff’s Office’s Explosives Ordinance Detail (bomb squad), Hostage Negotiations Team and Special Enforcement Team came together to train how to handle a crisis situation in a realistic school setting.
The sheriff’s office posted a video of the training on Faceboook. In the post, they said that the drill gave their teams a unique opportunity to “work side-by-side to solve a potentially deadly, volatile situation.”
During the drill, deputies got hands on training with deploying a throw phone to a suspect, using a bomb robot and other tasks that could be necessary to safely defuse a sensitive, possibly fatal school hostage situation.
The Sheriff’s Office said in their post that the video is a part of a wider effort to respond to requests for more special units training video on their Facebook page.
