SCMPD, CCSO officers train with state

FORSYTH, GA (WTOC) - Members from Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police and the Chatham County Sheriff's Office assigned to control unruly crowds showcased their skills with Georgia State Patrol and other law enforcement departments.

Twenty-four members of the SCMPD Mobile Field Force (MFF) and 10 members of the CCSO Corrections Emergency Response Team (CERT) trained with other departments at the Statewide Readiness Exercise at the Georgia Safety Training Center in Forsyth Friday.

The exercise simulated real world situations that emergency response teams could be called to, such as angry or peaceful protests and riots.
