The LaGrange Police Department is hosting free Civilian Response to Active Shooter Event, or C.R.A.S.E., training. The training will be held Tuesday, January 14th, 6:00-8:00 p.m. at LaGrange Police Department Training Center, 376 Aerotron Parkway, LaGrange, GA.
The LaGrange Police Department’s Patrol Division encompasses four squads of officers for generalized patrol duties and for responding to calls for service, with certain officers being focally trained to augment these squads. These areas of specialty include canine, traffic enforcement, and bicycle patrol operations. The division is also supplemented with civilian employees dedicated to Municipal Code Enforcement and Animal Control. With those allocations, the division consists of nearly sixty percent of the department’s total number of sworn and civilian employees. Patrol officers respond to a wide range of calls for service, conduct preliminary and follow-up criminal investigations, and process crime scenes while enforcing criminal and traffic laws as well as ordinances enacted by the City of LaGrange. These officers are also engaged in a variety of problem-solving initiatives and educational activities based on the department’s firm commitment to community policing.
