Sheriff to Provide Active-Shooter Defense Training

Free course will be offered once each month

The Putnam County Sheriff’s Office will provide free active-shooter defense training beginning next month. The course will be presented by deputies who have been certified as instructors in Civilian Response to Active Shooter Events, a curriculum developed by Texas State University that has become a national standard.

Since January, Putnam deputies have trained more than 1,000 people at schools, businesses and civic organizations. Beginning Oct. 11, the three-hour course will be offered to the public at 6 p.m. on the second Thursday of each month at the Putnam County Bureau of Emergency Services, 112 Old Route 6, Carmel.
