Bibb Sheriff confident deputies can handle active shooter scenario

MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – After a mass shooting in California Wednesday, the Bibb County Sheriff wants to reinforce active shooter training with his patrol deputies.

Sheriff David Davis is confident his team could handle responding to a similar situation in Bibb County. Sheriff Davis said patrol deputies would be the first on scene and then tactical units, like a SWAT team, would arrive. He explained a deputy’s main focus when responding to an active shooter scene is to find out as much about what’s happening inside the venue as he or she can. 

“They may move by people who need medical help the first time, but their first job is to stop the threat and that’s some of the things that we train our people and tactics that we use,” said Sheriff Davis.

Sheriff Davis said patrol deputies will be going through mandatory active shooter training again in the next few weeks.
